OK. I am also big into hunting and fishing. We are always under attack from what we call the "antis" or anti hunting anti fishing crowd. Now, many of the manufacturers of boats, tackle, guns, in fact the whole industry act as watchdogs. There are always articles in the fishing and outdoor magazines and such. They combat the antis with outreach programs and legal challenges, hire lobbyists etc.... What I would like to know is any body doing that for us? The feed companies ? Incubator manufacturers ? The big hatcheries ? The APA ? The manufacturers of those poultry waterers and feeders, the list goes on and on. They take our money, and the more folks that are allowed to have poultry, the more profitable for them. Is there any organization working on behalf of Backyard Chicken owners ? If not, why not? Seems to me there are enough of us.
