Question for the feet eaters, have you ever been in a chicken coop?


edit: my reason for not eating it is because it's effin disgusting.
It's all subjective I guess. I eat chicken feet, but I don't like eating any type of roe (cod, salmon, flying fish, etc.). I used to...but then the thought of having a thousand eggs in one bite, when they could've all been little fishes...that got to me.

Many cultures have things that other cultures may find disgusting...foie gras, sweetbreads, oysters, or even escargots can be seen as disgusting for other cultures.

Visualization and texture are the 2 major reasons why people dislike a certain kind of food. I started eating chicken feet before I even knew what it was when I was kid. :D It's smooth sailing aftewards.

There isn't much that I don't eat due to my imagination/visualization. But texture and smells sometimes get me

Now pigs that's a different story.

It's more for the sauce, not the meat. It used to be fun playing with the tendons too when I was a kid.

Which article is this?

I'm Asian and I don't like eating chicken feet because I'm not a big fan of skin. But I know loads of Asian and non-Asian people who love it. It's an acquired taste.

Some folks just have trouble eating something so readily identifiable.

Meatloaf, steaks and burgers don't really look like a cow and a pork chop or bacon doesn't look like a pig. Chicken feet look like .. well, they look like chicken feet.

The mental disconnect some people need to be meat eaters just ain't there. Too much "Ew factor".

I used to eat it when I was younger, but stopped since. Mainly because I'm lazy and hate eating things with so many bones in them, but also because you're pretty much just eating skin. Not much stuff on there. But, the sauce does taste good.

its sooo gross, my coworker brought a box and was sharing it wid all the other co-workers. When i was offered some I said No, but I was thinking You disgusting ***** (i forgot how many characters in the word chinook) , unfortunately I;m on an island (Taiwan) rite now where ppl eat it, its like french fries in Canada, i try to avoid looking at it wid my eyes but tough sometimes.

Can't ppl respect animalz, bad enough u ate it, now u gotta eat his feet too, so maybe he hopping on stumps in heaven :confused:
