In brief: If done carefully

There is limited research but a careful vegan diet can be very healthy; vegan diets reduce risk of obesity, high blood pressure, lower cholesterol & likely reduce cancer risk.
However, certain nutrients such as vitamin b12, carnitine, taurine & dha are difficult to obtain with a vegan dirt so should be supplemented. See www.Vegetarian-nutrition.Info/updates/vegan-diets-pros-cons.Php for more info.

The vegan diet is good for your health, the health of the chicken, and the health of the planet. Everyone on earth is encouraged to stop killing for food.
