I am just so sad! I have over the past couple of months lost two chickens to being eggbound (one yesterday) ..I can not stand it! it makes me want to buy eggs at the farmers market and stop with the chickens...what a horrible death it is...well my husband interviened and gave them a merciful end but darn it they suffered I am sure before we noticed
I love having the hens they are giving me such joy ..lots of eggs...scratching up the weeds in the yard I want plowed ...they give me fertilizer and eat up all my scraps
but this is so sad!
I do not mind humane butchering animals for food... I am a true omnivore but I do not like to see things die a painful death
