I have a friend who doesn't eat any part of a chicken. She grew up in the south where she saw her mother chop the head off chickens with an ax. Even so, the chickens still fluttered around the yard without a head. Her mother poured boiling water over the chicken to loosen the feathers. After she pucked off the feathers, she cut up the chicken and cooked it for Sunday dinner. As an adult far from where she grew up, she refuses to eat another piece of chicken because she can't get that image out of her head.
