Chicken investors...

I was just doing a search and found a really, really old thread where we talked about buying stocks related to non-beef industries, shortly after the mad cow scare.

Considering the bird flu stuff, I hope not too many people jumped into that one.

Just goes to show that you cant make knee jerk decisions and everything that looks good or bad right now will look differently in a year or two...

Re: Chicken investors...

Speaking of mutton: next time you guys are at the store, do what my husband did...

Take the leg of 'lamb' that you're about to buy. Hold it vertically and imagine the size of the animal it came from.

Re: Chicken investors...

I was talking about how they usually look pretty full-grown!

Mutton might sell in the UK, but in the US they jack up the price and put a 'lamb' sticker on it.

I did that with a ham shank.. in fact, I took two, held them by my thighs, and started walking.... it was funny.... to me. We ended up buying one of them.
