Cartoon strip: How NOT to Raise Chickens


WARNING – Raising chickens is a commitment, not a fad!

There used to be a time when chickens were
a common sight in American backyards.
Although it is starting to become popular again,
for the most part, most people don’t raise their
own livestock. Why not? It’s hard work!

Remember, chickens aren’t carrots: we’re dealing
with real living things here that need consistent,
long-term care. Otherwise it’s just another form
of animal oppression.

If you’re the kind of person that like to
wash dishes by hand and weave your own
fabric, maybe raising chickens is for you.

Otherwise, please stick to tofu. Thanks!
