In comparing Commercial beef to Commercial "poultry, fish or vegetables, whole grains and other healthy foods" how do you like these Free Range Chickens?
The Benefits of Pasture Raised Eggs | Small Footprint Family
I'm permanently dumbfounded and amazed by the food industries considerable ability to raise animals to the age of highest profitability followed 2 months later by death. They're not as perfect with humans, a fairly small percent live much longer that 65, but as the next generation shows, they're getting better at it.
We have 2 beagles and although I've thought about raising our own chickens (we have enough grass to raise them on) it's just not possible with beagles. But I am thinking of getting a nanny goat.
Thanks for sharing - very enlightening
Joel Salatin says you can raise 2 chickens in a 50 gallon terrarium. I've yet to give this a try.
Two chickens would give us enough eggs. U.S. Wellness has good dog food. I think Chickens are omnivores so I could smash the dog food with a hammer to feed the chickens.
Chickens Are Omnivores: It
Or maybe buy sacks of worms. I'll bet that would be expensive. We have tons of snails every spring.
But if I want chickens for meat, preferably <3 lb roasters I need chicks, this require a rooster, who crows every morning. Or I could just buy pullets? We'd also need a butcher, killing roasters doesn't sound like my kind of fun. I'll look into mobile butchers.
A goat would be for meat and milk. When I started PB I didn't drop dairy and had no problems with dairy. Then I dropped it for 2 months. The 4th month I've tried to add it back in and by body says NO. Stuffy nose, sinuses, and mucus in my throat and mouth. I hope that's only lactin, and not casin. Hard cheese seems still seems to be OK. But Oh how I love cream which supposedly has no lactin but does have casin. Cream in coffee, cream on berries, cream in liver pate, etc.
A goat has to be milked day and night, always. Maybe I'll just ask our mexican butcher if he can provide one. I'm not really worried about CW fed goat. Goats just graze wild, on anything.

Makes me glad I found a local butcher after switching to primal that only gets his meat from local farms.
My wife won't go there anymore because once we went in and there was half a cow on a table in back being carved up.
