Well, I don't know if a soapbox will contribute to your chicken coop building, but you might get a spot for nesting material . I think your chickens wouldn't mind an  egg laying spot..., and neither would the lacto-oval vegetarians... :D mind the eggs, that is.... :D

LOL it was kinda getting serious just wanted to lighten things up a bit I dont have much opinion on alot of things cause I always try to see all sides fairly and stay out of the spotlight for others to have cause honestly that is how the world has evolved for the past 100 yrs everyone has an opinion and somhow it all balences out one way or the other so wheather or not anyone is right or this is much better than the other it seems to me something is going right people are living more healthier and longer.

Well, to keep the lighthearted tone up, honey is kosher--the reasoning being that bees don't make it, they just bring it. So is propolis.

But beeswax is not kosher, because it is produced by bees, and they, of course, are not kosher.

So, there ya go.

Ah, but they do.  It is their digestive enzyme that converts complex sugars into simple sugars which is part of the conversion from nectar to honey.

In the end, I try not to dismiss folks for believing things I disagree with, and in many cases, really alien to my thinking. (I say try, because, I catch myself breaking this rule myself all the time) We all exist on a continuum of beliefs and idealism. I, personally, won't eat pork bought from the supermarket because I think the commercial pork industry has crossed a line of ethics. Vegans are simply very strict about their eating/use of animal/animal-produced products - they know there are no absolutes. Everyone has their line of ethics. There are folks even more strict than Vegans. Zealous followers of the Jainist tradition sweep the ground in front of them with a delicate broom to avoid injurying any creature. I am sure they are aware that they can't save them all. It's all a matter of degree. To each their own. I shake my head in wonder at the religious folks that evangelize me on my own front porch! The nerve! :) Well, they think they are doing the right thing. I ask them to please leave and not come back - they do. All is well. If it happens often enough, I will stick a sign at my driveway.

Anyway, let's not get nasty. There are a lot of good folks from all walks of life... Maybe *I* am being too idealistic. :)

I'm just giving you the logic of what I read. :) Good thing, too, otherwise, there would be no "land of milk and... umm, ya know."
