Why Chicken

Adil is fascinated by and somewhat obsessed with chickens, a situation that has existed for as long as Adil can remember. The root of this irrefutable condition is difficult to precisely isolate. As an example of this bizzare enthralment, Adil firmly believes that the integration of live chickens in current space programmes can serve as a vital food source in future human exploration of the solar system. Other than the prospect of them freezing or the problem of a lack of food, Adil is confident that these minor teething problems can one day be overcome.

Back on Earth, chicken can serve as a wholesome food source, provided they are reared in humane conditions. Not only does chicken have a wonderful taste and texture, it is also exceptionally versatile, with potential for inclusion in a vast variety of recipes. Adil would recommend the Beeb's page on the topic if in need of inspiration.

While Adil primarily loves chickens for their culinary purpose, he also appreciates their aesthetic qualities which are all too often overlooked. Chickens are remarkably soft and fluffy, as are most birds. But unlike most other birds, chickens cannot fly away which allows you to hold them. Chickens look wonderful, feel wonderful and taste wonderful, which should collectively provide some justification for Adil's overwhelming adoration of the things.
