I simply will not support the excuse that some don't get balanced nutrition in the wild as a valid reason to not provide proper and balanced nutrition in captivity...
Again, I am not making excuses. one acre of foraging land, which includes trees, bushes, plenty of fertile land for them to forage, plenty of fresh food, Barley, wheat seeds, millet, sprouted seeds, oats, table scraps and a steady supply of crushed shells. Doesn't sound too bad to me. I'm not sure if you misunderstood what I was trying to say or what. We're also rescuing the hens from a battery farm, we're not buying them from a breeder. I assure you I would never mistreat an animal, I'm a vegeterian and grow as much of my own food as I can. As I said, I care a great deal about nature, I was merely looking for suggestions, There is still more research to be done on my part.
I can't help but feel this is turning into an argument of some sort, And I don't want that.
