Carve your own from boxwood?  Or just sell stuffing?

If you mean the chickens will be vegan, then I have to ask why? They're not even vegetarian...

When you say vegan, i presume you mean they will be raised on a veg diet and no pellets etc. In the nicest posible way, I dont think you should pursue this idea because its not natural for the birds. They will have to be cooped up 24/7 and this is completely against the welfare standards set out, unless they have a very large pen.

My other idea of vegan chicken nuggets is the ones you can buy and probably did buy. They are made from chickpeas and artichoke hearts and coated in bread crumbs, and sold as vegan chicken nuggets.

By all means you can grow chickpeas and artichokes and make your own, but if the first idea is what you are pursuing I strongly advise against it.

Well I assumed you were being funny.  A vegan diet involves eating no meat, or any animal products, not even using animal manure to grow your veggies.  So a vegan chicken does not exist. If you mean you want to raise your chickens on a vegan diet then that is a whole different ballgame.  'Vegan chicken' as sold in a supermarket is just not chicken, it's chicken substitute made of veg, grown in a vegan society approved way.

No no no that can't be correct .I read a menu in a restaurant window. They were doing vegan pulled pork! Next you will be telling me there is no such thing as a vegan pig. If I can't find these chickens i may get a vegan pig. :roflanim:

I will call that two and a half bites! I just don't get it . Why do vegans name their food after everything they don't like .Chicken nuggets, pulled pork, vegan beef etc. Not sure if veggies do that? Good job i didn't mention raising haggis, that's a whole new minefield! :wave:

No you're ok, I think haggis are vegan anyway.

Oh my days! You meant SOYA type of vegan "chicken style" nuggets, I.e. something made of SOYA with artificial flavourings made in a shape of a chicken nugget.
Nothing to do with actual bird called chicken.
