Everyone has a kitchen secret or two. There's the aunt who won't share her meatball recipe for fear that someone will make it better than her.

A recent study undertaken by scientists in Ethiopia came to a startling conclusion: Chickens seemed to be immune to mosquitoes, showing fewer bites than any other animal. So the question is, of course: Why? And can that be replicated in humans? The answer isn't quite so straightforward.

Imagine a not-too-distant future where the survival of mankind hangs in the balance because modern medicine's frontline defenders -- antibiotics -- are being outsmarted by deadly microscopic enemies. I'm talking about the emergence of so-called "superbugs." They're real, they exist, and if you eat non-organic chicken, then you're all the more at risk.
Petronella's foot was injured in a chicken tractor accident. Around here the protocol for any injured or sick bird is to separate them from the rest of the flock and make them as comfortable as possible. Usually they pass on in a day or two. Not Petronella.

I love a good one-pot meal. The hands-on time is minimal and then you get to kick back and relax, or knock a couple of things off of your to-do list while your dinner simmers away and your house fills with delicious aromas. Bonus -- not only is the prep super easy, but so is your cleanup! One pot and done.

Canadians are familiar with the company's television ads promoting its "vegetarian-fed" chicken and beef with "no added hormones or steroids" (although neither policy affects animal welfare). While McDonald's and Wendy's are racing ahead to appear like chicken liberators, A&W risks branding itself as the guys who keep hens locked up.

Canadians slaughtered a staggering 640 million chickens in 2014 alone, which makes them by far the largest population of animals under human care. What's more, the degree of suffering experience by commercially-reared chickens is considered by some experts to be among the worst of factory farmed animals.

Up until now, Real Sports Bar & Grill and the Toronto Blue Jays shared some uncanny qualities. Both are well known brands and ongoing support for these entities are due to hopes for a positive experience. But instead, we end up with subpar sentiments -- the former with drab & dismally made bar food and the latter with season after disappointing season.

Is there anything more exhausting than making a meal from scratch after a long day of work? Save yourself some time in the kitchen by picking up a rotisserie chicken on your way home. The flavourful p...
Our eating habits currently sanction the slaughter of nearly two million chickens per day, the vast majority of whom are treated by the industry as meat-producing machines, forced to live through a mechanized, hellish experience. If your local SPCA habitually allowed dogs and cats to languish with excruciating injuries, or turned a blind eye while countless animals in its care died during transport, it would be rightly shut down by provincial inspectors. Yet the routinely barbaric abuse of chickens is an uncomfortable reality that exists nationwide -- a direct result of the high demand for legs, breasts and wings.

The word "chicken" has become the name of a product rather than that of an animal. Nearly all North American chickens are raised and slaughtered in industrial operations. Most chickens raised for meat are engineered to grow rapidly in crowded barns with tens of thousands of other birds. The virtual hell created for tens of billions of animals by factory farming is one of the greatest moral issues of our time. Positive change requires us to take animal interests seriously in the all the choices we make, as consumers, citizens and human beings.
Our efforts to stay clean have hampered us, leaving us with no opportunity for continual exposure to those lower levels of bacteria. As a result, when we do come into contact with them -- such as eating contaminated food -- we tend to have an increased chance of becoming ill.
Picture the perfect piece of chicken with a delicious sauce that's so tasty you'll want to lick your plate. Yeah, that's this chicken. I'm still thinking about it since I originally trialled the recipe! This may just be one of my favourite baked chicken recipes to date.
On Friday, the puppet poultry establishment, Chick-fil-a, released another statement opposing same-sex marriage, this one printed on Mike Huckabee's website. Honestly... you're a chicken store. You sell undercooked squawk. Nobody cares what you think about gay marriage so stop shoving it down our throats.
Let's have a quick show of hands among the diet-conscious: Who is craving a plain baked chicken breast right now? Exactly. No one. Chicken breasts au naturel don't ring my bells either, so I'm always...
