You can support this campaign for more humane treatment of poultry by choosing 'free-range' or 'cage-free' eggs at your grocery store. Even better are eggs from hens raised on pasture. These true free-range eggs often have the added bonus of being higher in nutrients and lower in cholesterol than eggs from caged birds.
For information about the health benefits of eggs from pastured
poultry, visit The
Chicken and Egg Page
You'll also find lots of great advice about raising your own chicks at the Web site of poultry expert, Robert Plamondon.
