I shoot both kinds.
I grow at least one small field of barley up here every year.
Mostly for the wild turkeys, the quail, and the grouse.
What I don’t use for beer goes to the birds.
Most years they get all of it.
Hmmm, we* have a few free range chickens and their egg yolks are slightly darker yellow than most commercial eggs, but certainly not orange bordering on almost red. OTOH, marigold flowers or their extract can be added to feed for continuously caged birds to “improve” yolk color.
*”We”. Haha - these are supposed to be mostly my daughter’s pets, and somewhat my wife’s too, but it seems like I end up doing half the work, my wife about 49%, and our daughter 1%! But... they are interesting critters to have around. They are not very smart, yet each has its own “personality”. They sometimes eat stuff that’ll raise one’s eyebrows a bit, though.
I actually remember someone was making oat bran beer back then? Health beer?
Personally, I can’t tell any difference between eggs from California and eggs from anywhere else. So why have this law?
Thanks for naming two.
This law has to do with the humane treatment of the chickens.
“Califorkinia chicken inspectors.”
I like the red hat they wear. Only question is how do they get the chickens into the white lab coats?
