Eat Beef And Let The Chicken Live

A bullock, ready for his one-way trip to the slaughterhouse, weighs, on average, three hundred times more than a chicken about to meet a similar end.

If the primary offence of murder is the snuffing out of consciousness, the sense of being of a creature, then the killing of a chicken is as morally wrong as the killing of a bull (no more, no less).

Approximately three hundred consciousnesses are sacrificed to obtain chicken meat, for human consumption, weighing the same as the beef obtained from the sacrifice of just one bullock.

Therefore, if we must eat meat obtained from previously conscious animals, then we should only eat beef as this will drastically minimise the number of consciousnesses we have to switch off.
