I know what you’re thinking when you look upon these butt-ugly birds. Why, God, why would you create such a putrid piece of poultry? Don’t blame God for these foul fowl, but rather the scientists at Israelis Rehovot Agronomy Institute near Tel Aviv who actually created these skinned squabs on purpose! The thinking is that these genetically engineered abominations will be able to withstand warmer temperatures and won’t have to rely on expensive cooling units thus making chicken less expensive and more practical for many third world nations… not to mention that plucking will become much easier. Take a look. Enjoy.
