Meat is a common eaten food in China for wealthy people and a not as common, more for special occasions, for the people on the poor side. Wealthy people ate meat A LOT! They ate pork, chicken, lamb, goose and many more. But on special occasions they ate snakes, dogs, snails, & small birds. The poor didn’t eat meat every day. They most always ate the chickens when they stopped laying eggs. By 100 BC artificial ponos were fished and carp was bred.
