Before I start this article I would like to say a few words from everyone at thetypesofchicken.com team. We are not vegetarians we – same as our chickens – are omnivores. We don’t judge vegetarians or vegans and we never will. We decided not to support the egg industry by breeding our own chickens because we like to eat fresh eggs and quality meat. This article was written to motivate some people to breed their own chicken and one other reason – because we don’t like what the egg industry is doing to this species and we are sure that there is some less cruel way to mass-produce eggs.
