I would love to hear from people who keep their chickens (all of them, not just certain ones!) strictly as pets (with the added benefit of eggs!) and who let them live out their entire lives and die naturally unless ill or injured, in which case, humanely euthanized and NOT eaten...like any other pet, be it a dog, cat, ferret, cockatoo or whatever. So far I've done tons of browsing and haven't really found anyone else. I'm not sure if this is the right place for me. I'm easily upset by a lot of things I've read It would be nice to at least have someone who shares my views!!
