We decided to raise some chickens. The reason for this is we grow a little garden and plan on letting the chickens help out with fertilizer and killing bugs. happy chickens make healthier eggs. It's also difficult to find free pastured, organic, soy free eggs. Most organic feeds have soy which is high in omega 6 since the americans diet is top heavy with omega 6 fatty acids we are trying to make a concious effort to increase our omega 3 intake. Another benefit to raising chickens is the little guys or I should say (gals) are so darn cute.
"The Boss", this little Rhode Island Red chicken has (so far) established herself as the Boss of the little flock of five we have living in a cardboard box in the living room.
(Update on "The Boss" Chicken) Turns out the "Boss" is a rooster. It's hard to tell when they're chicks lol.
Been trucking since 96. My main interest is having a good healthy life.
