I just looked at the website www.eggindustry.com

It has TOTALLY confirmed my decision to raise chickens for my own egg supply.
I usually purchase "free range" eggs at the grocery store anyway... but still.

That site broke my heart.


Now I really can't wait till my chicks grow up.

That's part of the reason why salmonella runs rampant in industry chickens and eggs. Homegrown eggs are so much better for you.

That is one reason we got hens. Now the thought of how they treat meat birds has led us to want to raise our own birds for eating too. (Well, DH is taking care of that end of it). It is just sad! I had someone recently tell me that "We can't talk to the chickens...how do we know that they don't like being in the cages?"

This was a large reason as to why I decided to raise my own chickens. Its so sad to see how chickens are raised and how their eggs can be healthy for my family, is impossible. The next time someone asks me "why chickens?" I'll steer them to this site! Thanks for the link
