I knew some readers would post juvenile comments about yakitori or roast chicken. Readers, this is a tragedy, to say nothing of a devastating blow to the farmers. Please think before posting lame jokes. I don't know why the mods allow it.

30,000 birds in two coops. Factory farming at its best. Devastating blow to the farmer, or should we say factory manager, my eye.

Poor birds. They had a lousy life, and a lousy death.

Wonder if the fire department brought BBQ sauce, instead of water.

You wouldn't want to eat those factory, chemical-fed chickens anyway. They spend their whole life in small wire cages and never see the light of day. If they had been raised out in the open (free range) like animals should be, this would not have happened. I'll pay more for free-range anyday.

I bet local KFCs didn't predict the sudden drop in business revenues.

scrap:

" You wouldn't want to eat those factory, chemical-fed chickens anyway. "

So what do you think you get when you order a karaage or chicken sando?

Notice that the wife called the police and not the fire department (she wanted to make sure they would be extra crispy for the arriving police - it sure beats donuts!).
