Default Melamine in Chicken Feed

No recall because the chickens have already been slaughtered. If you did
not realize immediated that this was bound to affect the human food chain,
this is your wake-up call.

What do you put in your homemade chicken feed? I'd like to do it myself
too...I usually feel better using my homegrown stuff, since I know that
nothing but what nature intended is in it.

I raise my own chickens, with my own home-grown feeds. I think they are
just fine.


Good for you. Not eveyone has that luxury or time.

That's an odd statement. Having once worked with harvesting
meat chickens, I'd hardly consider raising poultry to be a
luxury.


While raising poultry might not be a luxury, having the facilities, living
situation, money, etc. might be. A lot of people live in places where there
are ordinances against keeping livestock of any sort, or live in
apartments/townhouses where the yard space is just not there.

I mentioned this to my mother, and she said the brand we buy, it's 'local',
meaning the ingredients are grown and processed in this area(well actually
the next county over, but close enough), so hopefully it's ok.

I take
issue, however, with those who contend that being able to keep
livestock is luxury.


But what could be more luxurious than a ramshackle chicken coop and a
bunch of squawking chickens? Don't forget searching for eggs, mucking
out, feeding, protecting from intruders. Now that's what I call the lap
of luxury! And the lifestyle just becomes more elegant the larger the
livestock!

Nothing against chickens, I rather like them, and fresh eggs are
enjoyable...
