In a video, Unnatural Vegan explains that having a backyard hen is acceptable as she thinks it is not a form of exploitation. She draws on the works of Tzachi Zamir who makes a distinction between use and exploitation. I believe that she is wrong in her interpretation of Zamir's work and wrong in her conclusion that keeping a backyard hen is morally just. Here is why.

This is a response to the videos Tentative Vegan #2: Animal Use vs Exploitation and its follow-up Using Animals: Does Consent Matter? by Unnatural Vegan.
