I haven't been on this thread in quite some time.  Life just keeps getting in my way!  LOL  At any rate, I am looking to sell my Iowa Blues (amongst many other breeds) for the sole reason hubby landed a new job in another state and we can't take them with us.  I have 9 IB laying hens and 2 IB roosters (2011  & 2013 summer hatches bought from Privett Hatchery in NM).  This flock has been organically raised.  Free-ranged on 11yrs+ chemical free acreage, supplemented with...
For those of you looking for a certified non-GMO and certified Organic chicken feed:  Scratch and Peck  http://www.scratchandpeck.com/ If there's not a local source available to you there, but you have a local food co-op that orders through Azure Standard, then you can order the feed through them.   They even have one feed version that's corn free AND soy free (called "Naturally Free") and it's what I have been feeding my flock of over 50 laying hens for the past...
When the opposing party starts in with the name calling, IMO, opposing party loses all credibility... and wow, have you really thrown the names out there!  Feel free to stick with your GMO crops.  It's YOUR CHOICE and nobody's stopping you.  However, all we ask is that we're given an opportunity to make that decision for ourselves.  Much like you've decided you'd rather eat the GMO's, we deserve the choice not to.   As for the argument about methods used in the 50's.......

Not necessarily posting for the article itself.  However, I am posting for you to look at the pic associated with this article.  Looks like an Iowa Blue roo to me!  Does it to anyone else...?   http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/03/20/chickens-possible-cause-urinary-tract-infections/  
Never mind... having issues posting pics.  :/  
Oh, and this one (according the Google tag) claims it's the chest of an Iowa Blue hen.  But it doesn't look like any IB hen I've ever seen.  (although, admittedly, I've only got my 8 hens and 1 roo and have only seen pics of others here)   http://robbingpeter.tumblr.com/post/584724326/fhlockston-paradise
I was doing a Google search of Iowa Blue images and found this one: http://www.superstock.co.uk/stock-photos-images/4070-1954 It's a UK web site.  Wonder if this one is here or there?  Anybody claim this or recognize this pic?
