Conversations with Animal Farmers
By Frank and Mary Hoffman - 27 Dec 2012

Dear Jessie:
 
Thank you for writing. But we don’t understand why you have your chickens debeaked if they are free range.
 
Are you also aware of the fact that for every hen you have, that a male chick was suffocated or ground up alive right after they hatched. Also what do you do with the old hens? We ask these questions because we’ve never come across a truly humane food animal operation, but we do agree that the factory farms are much worse for the hens.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
