When you're not producing anymore...

***WARNING!! EXTREMELY GRAPHIC PHOTOS. DO NOT VIEW POST IF YOU ARE VERY SENSITIVE OR SQUEAMISH***

Dad and I decided to try out this old hen to cook which costed us half the price of a normal spring chicken. Much to our surprise, we saw a few developing eggs(looks more like an egg yolks) in it.

When a hen is not being able to produce as much eggs as expected, she'll bound to lose her life as she's not much use for production. As a hen, it was enough for her to serve her master. Or not? Cutting it open, we could see eggs which was still undeveloped and quite enough to have a few chicks of her own. Seems like it was too soon to die but she didn't have any choice to do so.

A statement from people around us saying, "I have no choice" seems to have not much impact anymore eh? I used to be that way some years back because I had no idea how the world outside like. Everyone would usually tell the 'facts of life' which made you dare not to try in order to live/survive. In short, just to play safe.
Living a life just to play safe is not life at all. It's just to live and produce what others expect of you. When you cannot produce, you're just like the chicken.

I was told by a colleague once, in a corporation, which is faceless, it values your serice as long as you are still useful and will show you the door once you have outlived the usefulness. The moral here is: demand what you deserve while you can.
