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.

i pretty much made this thread because i had just finished reading an article where someone was putting down chinese people because they eat chicken feet.. and they hadnt even tried it before...

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.

people (typically of non-asian origin) have some problem with eating it for whatever reason.. im just wondering what is your reasoning behind not eating it..
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.

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.

The chicken will be dead regardless, so I don't think it will matter to it.

But, will it be more comforting for you to know the feet were wasted in the garbage instead for feeding someone?

Not all Asian people eat chicken feet, or fish heads, or puppies!!!! :mad:

Frankly, I think the reason that chicken feet, intestines, fish heads, etc. make up a small part of Asian cuisine is due to poverty. Everybody knows, including Asians, that these are less desireable parts of the animal. No matter where you go, chicken feet is much much cheaper than chicken breast. So poor people buy the chicken feet and make the best of it. The same applies in poor areas anywhere. For example, poor predominantly black communities in the US eat pigs feet, chitlins, etc.

Yeah people, quite knocking on the Asian homies, they are the bringers/manufacturers of chopsticks, William Hung, many dollar store items, Compaq Laptops and great places such as Mandarin!

bones and lack of meat. I agree that the actual look of the foot creeps out alot of people.

Regarding what the inside of a chicken coop looks like... They peel off an outer epidermis when preparing chicken feet -- and they do wash the product.

For me it's simply the though of eating Chicken's feet that turns me off of them. Just the way I was raised, I suppose, I have no idea what they taste like.

I used to work in the Loblaw's meat department; we'd have people put in special orders for pig's feet, chicken necks, etc. There is a demand for these items out there!

these items are usually for soups.
