    writing a persuasive speech on the benefits of raising you own chickens for meat and eggs verses the store bought meat and eggs. can anyone help me with links to where I can find info on the feed rationed to meat and egg producers? I only need 3 and I have 2. the last one has to be from a reputable source. my instructor wants a .gov, .edu, .org site.thats the only one I have had issues with.
    can anyone help?

    Here is a link to a website that gives you lots of information about backyard chickens....,there might be something you can use. You have to enroll to read the articles, but it is free. I will look for some more.

    There are lots of documents here, and loads of historical documents.....don't know if it will help or not:
