What does this mean???????
That is crazy! Makes no sense at all!
I don't see anything about chickens but State Farm does have insurance for farms
Geico's advertising has a gecko (lizard); AFLAC has a duck or goose, I forget. I think that's the reference.
I work as a personal assistant for 2 different insurance agents in Chattanooga. I can tell you that Shelter insurance,and State farm both have a farm policy. I have a donkey and 4 hens, I have home owners with a umbrella policy to cover any additional libility, home or auto.
$27 / year increase because of the chickens!
I went and asked four insurance companies in my area about having chickens in my backyard and they all said "livestock-can't cover you". Luckily I did find one provider in my area that was ok with me having my mini horses and chickens in my back yard.
Did that actually happen to your friend, or did she pass along something that she heard on the internet?
Thats why i had my whole flock tested ,just to have a back up plan.If i need more testing done i can get done. The State livestock vet is only about 15 miles from my house.
My insurance agent called to tell me that the insurance appraiser that came to my house noticed that I had more than 10 chickens. Because of this I have to have farm insurance and instead of $585 per year it will cost about $1250!! This is because my chickens are free range, I sell eggs, and I have about 75 chickens (30 newly hatched to replace some of the older birds that will become dinners for the upcoming months). They say if someone eats one of my eggs and gets sick I can be sued. I have done everything in my power to be truthful about everything I do. I keep track of the eggs I sell for income taxes, and there really is not very much profit to that because I sell eggs to help pay for feed, not to retire off from. I checked on laws and regulations and such for my state so that I am not breaking any laws. I think that this is such SUE HAPPY world where everyone is looking for free money and old fashioned honest people like me are becoming an endangered species.
