Well the chick didn't make it. So it's a moot point.


But yes they knew where the chick came from, that it wouldn't lay, that it was a meat chicken, all that stuff. Neither of us wanted the chick to die and it didn't really matter what kind it was.

Aww poor little guy. Considering it's original destiny, I'd say it was probably a blessing. At least he was crowded with a bunch of other scared babies until it died.

So sad
I have seen what these birds look like when they go past their expected life span and it's not pretty. I agree that it is probably a blessing.

They are prone to leg breaks, dislocations and deformities because they are bred to carry more weight than the body can sustain long term. They basically stop walking and then they are prone to dehydration, starvation and sores or rot.
They have no quality of life.
This is why I do not buy Cornish X's for meat. I stick with my slower growing, less meaty heritage breeds.
I also hate Perdue.

I can't imagine that smells great, lol
We had quite a few egg farms in our old town. It was lovely.

We have quite a few chicken houses around here, too. Purdue, another I can't think of off the top of my head and a rather large operation for Eggland's Best. I actually stopped buying their eggs when I realized that they weren't raised any different than traditional egg hens (I don't know why I thought they would be )... I also have very real doubts that they can possibly truly be any healthier in a "cage free" or even "organic" setting if they are still crammed into very stinky houses. How is that any better?

At least 3 different properties we looked at around here had chicken houses in semi-close proximity, which made it a no-go for us. One of the properties was almost perfect... perfect distance to work for DH and town for us, already had fenced pastures and even had a well and septic. Two problems, the guy was asking way more than he should have been and it was adjacent to a large poultry farm that smelled to high heaven. We went out several different times to try to see if it was always stinky. It wasn't, but then we started worrying about run off and such and decided against it.

House of Raeford was the other one.

It's not any better. "Cage free" and "free range" mean very little. Organic only means that their feed was organic. Many of the standard practices are the same. Vegetarian fed means they weren't fed their natural diet and I'd wonder about the true quality of the eggs. Though i suppose they aren't fed a subpar animal by product, so maybe that's not bad.
Yellow yolks in commercial chickens means they were fed a supplement to turn them yellow/orange. That used to be the way to tell a good egg from a 'bad' egg in terms of quality. It seems now that everyone is adding supplements.

All the more reason I am glad my girls are finally laying. We will, hopefully, be adding more hens in May.

For a good while, I was able to get eggs from a semi-local farm where I know their hens are actually free-ranged. Unfortunately, they had a predator problem and lost more than half their birds. Another place brings eggs to our local market, but it's only once a month and they sell out quickly... I've been there and their hens are very well cared for and are allowed to free-range & forage. I honestly feel like that is more important to me, even, than the organic feed. I've seen the trucks from the industrial places with all the chickens shoved in pens, stacked high, scared to death and the inevitable trails of feathers down the highway. I see those houses and can only imagine how miserable it must be to be an animal in there. I feel much better knowing my chicken and eggs are coming from a place where they were allowed to just be chickens. But gosh, it does cost more!

The 'humanely raised' stickers do mean something, though, right?
