My family traveled across the state this weekend for a soccer tournament. A few miles from the sports complex out in the middle of nowhere, I noticed a large, confinement chicken operation. You’ve probably seen this type of factory farm before, but perhaps didn’t know what they were .. long, thin, windowless white buildings standing in line, one after another in very ominous fashion.
I need 100 safe, healthy, live and mite free chickens. I have some space and would like to farm them to eat.
Hey Sara! Since you happen to be my chapter area leader I'd love a copy of small scale farmers in my area.. I keep driving around looking for signs thus far, but that hasn't been too helpful lol 🙂 Thanks!
All the best,
Another wonderful option is to raise your own happy girls and allow them to scratch about your backyard! Not every city has rules against hens (though most have rules against roosters), so it might be worth a look to see if you can keep your own. We love watching our small flock and the beautiful, orange yolks they produce in their eggs is a testament to how happy they are. Never a pale yellow yolk in the bunch- always stunning and orange!
