    Excellent article!! I remember reading fairly recently that Seattle animal shelters were overrun with chickens looking for homes!!
    I don't cherish the thought of culling my hens, so I guess they are going on to 'chicken social security'. Then again, maybe not............[​IMG]

    It's a good article actually, raised some very good points that people do need to think on, especially urban ones with limits. I myself being rural can keep 99 laying hens before needing to buy Quota so i am more than safe lol

    The numbers are a bit foggy though, "$28 per 40 pound bag" most don't do that. My 55lb bag of feed is less than 20$ and frankly hens don't eat that much at least not compared to the piggy ducks i keep [​IMG]
