  6. Rose-Colored Chicken Glasses

    Many moons ago it was thought that chickens incorrectly needed to be outfitted with rose-colored glasses. The reason for this was to prevent chicken cannibalism, as the sight of blood on a chicken caused a violent, aggressive reaction in other chickens who saw that blood. In response to seeing blood, other chickens would peck at the bleeding chicken, often until dead, which caused a large casualty rate amongst flocks. Because of this, farmers sought to prevent chickens from being able to see...
  7. Raising Mealworms

    When it comes to feeding chickens and keeping them healthy, you want to feed items that are both delicious and nutritious. Options for feeding chickens in the form of both regular meals as well as treats are plentiful, but having an option that is self-renewing is both convenient and easy on the bank account.

    China has been home to a number of serious food safety concerns. In March, thousands of dead pigs were found floating in a river in China that supplies drinking water. The incident occurred after a large...
  9. Chicken Breeds Part Two: Rare Birds

    In my last article about chicken breeds, I highlighted some rare and common breeds, but with part two of this piece, this is a good time to shine light on some chickens you may have heard of before. These are chickens that are sold on the market, or are found in other countries. And because of their rare stature in North America, they may not make the best meat sources, since they can be fairly expensive on the market. Instead, they would make good trophy and pet birds rather than as your...
