A hot topic in homesteading these days is backyard hens and the eggs they will produce for you.

Superbug Found In Imported Meat Resistant to All Antibiotics

Many of you reading this are alive today because of antibiotics. It’s a marvel of the modern world that has given us so much life. But because of our abuse of antibiotics and regularly consuming dairy products and eat meat that were given antibiotics, bacteria are growing resistant and causing many of the “last resort” antibiotics to be less powerful than in years past. Inevitably, infections we used to easily treat will evolve and become resistant them. These “superbugs” now threaten to derail decades of medical progress – and no one will be safe in a post-antibiotic world.

(NaturalNews) Jim Perdue, the self-proclaimed “head cheerleader” for Perdue Farms, proclaims, in a video produced by his company, that he and his company always want to “do the right thing.” It’s such a catchy phrase to listen to while watching Perdue drive his pick-up truck down a highway, yellow ball cap perched on his head, trying to look like any other chicken farmer. But, he’s not. Jim Perdue is the leader of family-owned Perdue Farms, Inc., which is the parent company of Perdue Foods and Perdue AgriBusiness. “Doing the right thing,” according to the Perdue Farms website’s Corporate Responsibility section, … Continue reading ‘Humanely raised’ chickens suffer torturous existance, “The consumer is being hoodwinked’

5 Steps to Get the Best Eggs Possible

Treating your layer hens to a little TLC will mean delicious, golden-yolked eggs for your morning breakfast. Back in the days before my layer flock came to enliven life on our farm, I would have picked the egg for sure—or maybe the egg carton. After all, the runny, pale-yolked eggs I cooked came from cartons sold at the grocery store, not from any chickens that I could see. My perspective changed, however, when I brought home our first fuzzy chicks, watched them grow into gawky pullets and waited—and waited—with bated breath for our first farm-fresh eggs to magically appear. I … Continue reading 5 Steps to Get the Best Eggs Possible
