Lucy Torres has stopped eating chicken. Here’s why

Seeing chickens grow up in their Ormoc backyard has made Lucy Torres-Gomez love them rather than crave them.

The Ormoc congresswoman could be well on her way to becoming vegan, thanks to a childhood memory repeated a second time. She explained that she has never eaten goat meat ever since his brother Matt took care of a pet goat. “After all, you never eat playmates,” she shared.

“I realize I am starting to feel the same way about chickens. I come down from our room and this Mother Hen is the first thing i see,” she explained, sharing a photo of the family’s hen named Delilah.

“That shared I don’t think I can ever eat chicken again. I actually haven’t in almost two months. They are my lockdown friends. We smile at each other daily, they listen to my Spotify playlist while I read and journal. We are family,” the politiko added.

Growing up my brother @88matt88 had a pet goat. It was almost a family member, and there were times he would drag the animal inside our house to hopefully stay beside him at the dinner table. I say ‘hopefully’ because Mommy would not hear of it. But because of that memory I could never eat goat meat. Then, now, ever. After all, you never eat playmates. I realize I am starting to feel the same way about chickens. I come down from our room and this Mother Hen is the first thing i see. She is just one of many that roam freely in our backyard. Juliana has named her Delilah. She nests her eggs tenderly, as if they were precious gems., guarding them with her life. Because there is this one wicked chicken who tries to steal her treasures. Solomonic wisdom says we side with Delilah. We check on her daily, and it’s been over 20 days of devotion. Such pure love. That shared I don’t think I can ever eat chicken again. I actually haven’t in almost two months. They are my lockdown friends. We smile at each other daily, they listen to my Spotify playlist while I read and journal. We are family. Sharing photos/videos of Delilah and her babies here. They are lovely.♥️
