    I am not trying to get political, Im just curious. Please no mean reponses [​IMG]
  2. I am [​IMG]

    Personally im against [​IMG]
    No trying to be negative at all but i want to state my opinion -

    Remember, this is my PERSONAL opinion [​IMG]

    I read over the information many times... A few animal activist groups are geting upset because the egg factories use small cages to hold their hens. The general fact is, they are raised off the ground, away from fecal matter and away from the natural pecking order, created in flocks. They want to make free ranges mandatory. That requires much more room and will have a high disease rate(due to the poo they will live in) and high death rates(due to pecking order). Many buisnesses will go out of buisness because of the fact that they will need much more room, and hens will die off left and right....
    So im against it [​IMG]

    Edited to add-

    Also, many of the people who created the prop have never seen real comercial free ranges, and do-not know their conditions.

    I will, and as much as I love my chickies I am not in favor. There is a commercial free range operation down the hill from me, the chickens are in little tiny triangle huts that are moved around.
