99% of meat, dairy, & eggs in the U.S. come from factory farms.

"Factory farming causes billions of animals to suffer every year, but they are not the only ones paying a heavy price. Animal agriculture accounts for a large percentage of the greenhouse gases associated with climate change. Waste from factory farms also makes its way into the air and water supply, poisoning rural communities."

"The new research shows that without meat and dairy consumption, global farmland use could be reduced by more than 75% – an area equivalent to the US, China, European Union and Australia combined – and still feed the world. Loss of wild areas to agriculture is the leading cause of the current mass extinction of wildlife."

Adding extra male chicks (free of charge) for warmth is another option. If you do not want us to add extra chicks, please let us know when you are ordering."
