Interesting. Yikes!
Does KFC Use Real Chickens?
KFC has been a part of our American traditions for many years. Many people, day in and day out, eat at KFC religiously. Do they really know what they are eating? During a recent study of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire, they found some very upsetting facts.


First of all, has anybody noticed that just recently, the company has changed their name?. Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC. Does anybody know why?. We thought the real reason was because of the "FRIED" food issue. It's not. The reason why they call it KFC is because they can not use the word chicken anymore. Why?

KFC does not use real chickens. They actually use genetically manipulated organisms. These so called "chickens" are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure. They have no beaks, no feathers, and no feet. Their bone structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them. This is great for KFC because they do not have to pay so much for their production costs.
There is no more plucking of the feathers or the removal of the beaks and feet. The government has told them to change all of their menus so they do not say chicken anywhere. If you look closely you will notice this. Listen to their commercials, I guarantee you will not see or hear the word chicken. I find this matter to be very disturbing. I hope people will start to realize this and let other people know. Please forward this message to as many people as you can. Together we make KFC start using real chicken again.

In 1991, Kentucky Fried Chicken decided on a name change to KFC. Why, after 39 successful years, would a world-famous restaurant chain change its name?

Maybe because KFC is just easier to say with your mouth full. Or maybe KFC fits better on signs. In reality, we wanted to let our customers know that we had more for them to enjoy than just fried chicken, and many were already calling us KFC, as it was much easier to say.

Truth is, we didn’t do a great job at explaining the KFC name change, which left the door open for folks to get creative with the reason. And boy did they! Shortly after the name change, an email chain letter—it was 1991, remember—began to spread the rumor that Kentucky Fried Chicken used genetically modified chickens and was forced to remove the word “chicken” from its name.

KFC is the second largest restaurant chain after McDonalds.

The viral message regarding KFC is active since 1999 and there has been email and links being shared on different social platforms as well.

100% Real chicken: KFC claims to use 100% real chicken. It says their chicken comes fromAmerican Family farms, this are the same farms that supply the brands to any other grocery store, it says the chicken are raised without artificial hormones or steroids which is a federal regulation. .

The words chicken is still used in the KFC menu, so logically they are using the chicken, now if someone spreads a hoax message regarding the originality of the chicken inside KFC is itself a HOAX.
