Oh yes, Kimberly. All of the people we give our eggs to know that I am vegan. And yes, it is too bad that none of these people are willing to give up eating meat and dairy. In fact, one of my neighbors said to me not to believe everything I read. I wanted to jump her, but I told her that I not only read about such horror in the meat and dairy industry, I also told her that I have seen live footage. In fact, I invited her to come to my house so she could watch some of my videos, but she said she does not want to know. I give her eggs after I give everybody else theirs. And the reason I give her eggs in the first place is because she has hardly any money.
About my chickens and me not wanting them to reproduce, the rooster would be the one to get "fixed", but a rooster is such a great bird. They make a flock of hens complete. Plus their crowing all day gives me such happiness and peace of mind. I am waiting to hear from Farm Sanctuary because I have enough room in the chicken coop to adopt at least 10 more hens.
