Well, chickens can fly, just not long, and not very far.

I blame Brazil for most things...



The only other thing that I can find about artificial honey is that it can be emulated with corn syrup, but of course, it isn't as good as the real thing.

Also, supposedly cheap brands use fillers.

Scientists have been making silk from goats for perhaps a decade. It still requires animals, it just doesn't kill them.

Goat silk isn't as strong.

I expect most synthetic things to be superior at some point than the original. For instance, synthetic diamonds are flawless. Color and size has been a challenge, but that too will probably get solved.

...now, how to synthetically age Scotch to perfection, instantly.

This is entirely dependent on how much thrust you apply to the chicken.

Synthetic diamonds already reach the point to be as good, as clear, and in some aspects even better, more pure, than natural diamonds, and without cost so much and without help promote war in some african countries.
But for use in hard harp tools (drills for example) they prefer the yellow earlier genertation artificial diamonds, since the process it's more affordable than the last generation artificial diamonds.

But I'm not sure if the last generation modern artificialÁ diamond are a bit cheaper comparing to the final diamonds price on market, or if it's compared to mining diamonds price, since a relevant portion of the natural diamonds's price are due the marketing surrounding it and not jut due the rarity and mining work be expensive.

More like selective breeding, wild (prairie) chickens fly just fine, same with turkeys. In fact both are fond of roosting in trees.
