Weíve lost Charlie Three. Itís all very sad but you have to accept that youíll lose pets. Itís what you do in the time youíre together with them that matters.

I agree with you about commercial chicken breeds.  It is not right  :(  There is a need for good, inexpensive food to make sure everyone can get it, but there must be a better way.

Like most folk, I can't afford top of the range organic, but I do read labels and try and buy the better welfare standard chickens.  I don't eat meat every day, so I reckon I can stretch to it when I do.   If I do buy eggs, they are always free-range, but I know they will still be from the same commercial breeds.  I'm lucky to have the choice over that.  If you are on a really tight budget, you have to buy what you can.

My lot are laying, but only 2 are young enough and they are sporadic.  The other 2 are both over 8 years old and retired, which is not even close to commercially viable, even for their modest feed costs.  I also have a lad who was rescued from the dreaded cull at a breeders.  I don't breed chickens, so he is a complete freeloader.   They are pets, but they are my responsibility, so they get the best life I can give them  :)

It's not an easy one - we've a society where many have crazy amounts of money and others, despite working hard, rely on charity to feed themselves and their children. Difficult to tell the latter group they should pay more for food and buy organics.
I wish I was young again, I knew all the answers then :)
