Thank you for writing this, Aidan! I really hope you keep writing on RTH; you're voice is certainly welcome back any time!

It's a refreshing and insightful read alongside many of the heavy, messy, politically-laced posts on this site. I agree in your approach - a chicken, like all animals - needs to be tended to. If tended properly, the benefits far outweigh any negatives. My guess is that anybody interested in raising their own chickens will tend to them in a responsible manner. If the goal is sustainable, ecological and organic food for ourselves, then this standard of living should certainly be passed on to the animal from which we benefit.
