Eating Animals 2: Backyard Chickens

by Patrick on November 5, 2009

You may know Sherri Gallentine from her various guest posts on the Vroman’s Blog (many of them culinary in nature) or from seeing her around the store, but did you know that she raises chickens in her backyard in Altadena?  I thought it would be enlightening to visit her backyard chicken farm and see how the birds lived.  Of course, this meant we had to get them back into the coop at the end of the visit, too.  That, I learned, is easier said than done.  Watch and find out.
