DON'T EAT TYSON CHICKEN - chickens are abused and tortured at Tyson factory farms. They should shut down ALL factory farming!
Same with Colonel Sanders - their chickens come from sadistic factory farms that torture chickens. Chickens are the most abused, mistreated creatures in the world. If people would stop eating chicken, it would put the factory farms out of business. The only chicken people should eat is Purdue, where the chickens are well treated and well fed and range free.
