    Well, it's really nice how they get to live! So much nicer than the commercial poultry producers! If only people knew......

    oh I know! we have 88 spoiled pets who enjoyed their lives right up until the day they ended. It has been a bit of a pain for us, and a bit sad today too knowing they go in tomorrow. But they are filling thier destiny's and we are making sure they are comfortable and happy doing so. Raising meat birds is a very rewarding experience in our house.
