When we see a dog wearing a plush jacket in the fall, we don't blink an eye; but when we see a farm-raised chicken walking the streets, then we do a double-take with wide, open eyes.
And, why should we? Since when do poultry have to be used for food and not for pet care? Jennifer Garner is an advocate for the humane treatment of chickens; and she has been seen with her poultry on leashes. (Obviously, the pictures on Jenn's Instagram have won over fans.)
I just hope that she secures her chicken in an open-space chicken enclosure. Free-range chickens are happier and are more fit than caged chickens. They also produce better tasting eggs (meaning fluffier baked goods!).
Who else is a backyard chicken owner?
