Good Shepherd Conservancy — The Origins of Factory Farm Poultry

Good Shepherd Conservancy — The Origins of Factory Farm Poultry

In 1923, most chicken keepers had small backyard flocks that primarily produced eggs for the family and perhaps a few neighbors or a local store. That was Cecile Steele’s intention when she ordered 50 baby chicks for her home flock in the Delmarva Peninsula. But much to her surprise, she received 500 birds! Instead of protesting, Cecile decided to raise the large flock in her modest chicken coop. A few months later, she sold the 387 that survived at a tidy profit. Within three years, Cecile ...

Good Shepherd Conservancy — Saving America's First Breed of Chicken

Good Shepherd Conservancy — Saving America's First Breed of Chicken

Of the over nine billion chickens raised in the United States last year, nearly all were one kind of bird — the industrially produced Cornish cross F14 hybrid. History has shown us time and time again that monocrops like this — particularly at this massive scale — are nothing but bad news. American poultry farming wasn't always like this though. Less than a hundred years ago, Standardbred, heritage breed poultry dominated the market, supporting lots of small farms and promoting biodiversity i...

Not only has the agricultural system transformed dramatically, so have the livestock themselves. Not all is lost, however.
