I love the idea that people are getting more in touch with nature. And the notion that a backyard flock somehow threatens commercial producers is laughable, it is my understanding that in the outbreaks of disease or contamination none were from small holdings of a handful of birds or from a home garden all were in commercial facilities. Maybe people ought to think about that I mean just the same as with dogs a person can keep a few dogs and keep them very clean and sanitary but put several thousand dogs in one building and well, the problem becomes a little more complex...
