Flying with chickens!

As the world's consumption of meat increases, so does another problem - the excrement of factory farm creatures. Now, however, chicken giant Perdue has teamed up with two energy companies to build a $200 million plant in Maryland that will convert the excess chicken excrement into energy. The idea is that the poop will go through an anaerobic digestion process, devoured by microbes that will produce methane, which can be used to generate electricity. Now even your electricity can taste like chicken.

  1. As long as it doesn't smell like chicken poop. That's some really awful smelling stuff.

    Loved the play on words.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺
