Trendy Hens?

According to a recent article from Natural Health magazine, a growing nationwide trend is rearing ‘backyard chickens’.  Enthusiasts tout both the health and emotional benefits of raising your own flock.   At Earth Zone, we’re a bunch of animal-loving hippies, but this one has us a little surprised.  Obviously, there is a significant financial and emotional investment in raising your own chickens for eggs.  What do you do if your hen stops laying at only a year old?  Do you commit to the next 10 years or so of care of your chicken as a ‘pet’ or does your laying-hen become Sunday’s dinner.  What are your thoughts?
