    Hello, I do not have chickens in my back yard(yet) but I am trying to eat healthier. Does anyone know of a source for hormone-free, free range chicken bones, feet, scraps, etc? I need to regularly make natural bone broth, and cannot find these things. I live in Jenison MI. Thanks so much!!!

    I suppose you could raise up some broilers and then you would be sure they were organic.

    That would be ideal. As much as I support and believe in that, I'm a single mom with 4 jobs right now, barely staying afloat. Raising chickens just doesn't work for me right now. But I wish I knew someone nearby who did and didn't need their "scraps" lol.
