I don't believe grafting is the same as breeding......

Who eats chicken wings? That's the part we used to throw to the cats when we butchered chickens on the farm.

I was told once that the U.S. chicken industry has an arrangement where dark meat parts, which are the sections that are used mostly for movement (legs and thighs) and contain more vascular tissue, are in higher demand outside the United States. This is convenient for the domestic market which has been conditioned to accept the more attractive white meat parts. Don't know how far that extends, but here in the States the majority of chicken parts available are the breast sections.

I'm a breast man, myself.

I've never had much desire for eating chicken wings, and thought they were better used for making soup stock. Now there are food franchises based on them. Considering all the parts of the chicken humans eat directly, I can only imagine what is left to go into my cats' food. My boys usually turn their noses up at any chicken-based wet foods, although they are fussy eaters.

Well then to paraphrase the bitch-queen of France from history, long, long ago, "Let them eat mice!"

Kinda looks like a young Robin Williams. Along comedy lines : Can I eat THAT chicken ?
