Chickens in American Today

Did you know, according to Mother Earth Magazine, 99% of all Chickens used in "Farming" today are Genetic Hybrid Layers and Meat Production birds? 

Only 1% of Chickens breeds for meat and eggs for American families are traditional breeds.

Out of that 1%, far fewer are actually raised to Breed standards. Most of that 1% are simply Hatchery stock that, sadly, barely resembles the breed whose name they bear.

Do something radical.

Purchase your poultry from a real person who is working to not only retain the type the breed should have, but who raises the breed in a way which actually makes it a heritage animal. . .

Bearing the name alone does not a heritage animal Make.
