Do you eat babies?

I must admit I have in the past, but now I don't eat much meat at all. I never had a problem eating veal or anything like that, but some people do. I'm not sure what the difference is-why you would eat a mama or dada but not a baby?

  • I've never tried veal, but lamb is pretty good. I had baby octopus once when I traveled to Spain and they were delicious! Do I regularly eat baby animals? No. But I'm not opposed to the idea either.

  • Well most people eat chicken and eggs...wouldn't the eggs be the baby in fetal form?

  • Jademom

    Chickens lay eggs regradless if they are fertilized or not. The eggs we eat from the market would never grow a chick, they are not fertilized. There is no life in those eggs. But, lots of farm people eat fertilized eggs & don't mind.

  • MMMM I love babies!!! Little hot sauce, maybe some BBQ & some dry rub, put em on the grill.... JK!!!! LOL I eat only mamma & daddy animals, not bc I refuse to eat baby animals but bc that's what's available. Veal's too expensive for me! Like the thing about the eggs, that's a good point!

  • Most chicken eggs are unfertilized, so no, we're not eating chicken babies.

    Yeah, I don't eat veal except for the rare occassion I have a gyro.

  • I don't eat meat at all because I find eating mom, dad, or baby animals disturbing.
