-- Jurassic Flock Farm uses sustainable agriculture methods to earn Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW certification for their pasture-raised laying hens --

KINGSPORT, TN (NOVEMBER 30, 2017)--The flock of laying hens at Jurassic Flock Farm is now Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW).

     So we did our typical homework and started reading everything we could find in our chicken books and online about using a broody to raise day old chicks.  Let me tell you, there's not a lot out there.  There is tons of stuff about using a broody to hatch eggs, but it's not quite the same.  And the few people that do talk about it just give hints and vague details about parts of the process, the part...
