Misconceptions about Chickens and Eggs

Keeping chickens penned is inhumane.

Chickens like to be able to roam around freely, but it isn’t always safe for them to do so, even in the country. Most livestock is kept confined in some way for its own safety, and chickens are no exception.

Chickens can be allowed supervised roaming from time to time, just like your pets. And confined chickens don’t annoy the neighbors or damage the flower beds. Confined chickens pose less of a health risk too, because they aren’t as likely to come in contact with wild birds that carry diseases, such as bird flu.
