Unnatural Diet

A normal chicken pecks around the farmyard for insects, weeds and seeds. Somebody got the weird idea of feeding chicken a high-calorie artificial diet of pure wheat (which was cheap). Most of the chickens did not actually die. The marketers declared the meat and eggs veggie fed, as if it were a Good Thing™. Obviously such meat and eggs cannot be as delicious or as nutritious as those fed a natural diet.
