I found this gem in a current article about the congressional bill removing state-mandated food warning labels:

The bill's supporters argue that consumers deserve the same warnings on supermarket shelves across the country. The bill would allow a state to seek a nationwide warning from FDA.

"We ought to do it in all 50 states," said Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich. "Chicken grown in Louisiana is going to end up on a plate in Michigan."
So apparently chickens are a type of plant. :confused:

Ambiguous term. You can raise corn and wheat, so I guess you can grow chickens.

Soon, probably. Genetic engineering. I bet the Japanese thought it up: chicken on the cob, or something.
