This week Janet Garman, of Timber Creek Farm, joins Scott to talk about homestead chickens. Janet has been raising chickens for many years and has written a book on the subject titled, "Chickens From Scratch". Whether you are just getting started with chickens or have had them for years, this episode will have useful information that you can put to use at your place. We will cover equipment needed, feeding, predator control, starting chicks, breeds and much more.
You might think "What can be so interesting about chickens?" It's not about chickens. This is a show where we talk about how municipalities operate and make decisions. Just like with parenting, any government has the ability to overpower it's citizens. No one can dispute the power of the sword, especially when the government is bigger and stronger than the indivudual. But does might make right?
On this episode we interview Patrick Stovall, the gentleman who is organizing a petition drive to create a law allowing citizens to have chickens. We also hear from Cathryn Davis, an agronomist who comments on her own experience with chickens and her municipality.
Our own city provided us with several examples recently of how a governing body can suddenly shift from being friendly to being hostile toward freedom. Our liberties are always vulnerable, but so much more vulnerable when we have a governing body that has fallen into the "group think" syndrome.
So on this show today, you will hear a lot about the chicken ordinance, but please listen to the real issue which is our ability to govern ourselves and how bigger government ideology insults the intelligence of the citizens.
Backyard chicken raising is becoming very popular in urban communities. I will share my experiences when I decided to get started with a small flock of my own. There are a few things that I should have done differently before purchasing my hens. I hope my lessons learned will benefit others that are interested in keeping chickens in the city.

This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy discusses the phenomenon behind “winged cats” - cats with wing-like appendages. But the unusual animal investigation doesn’t stop there. Also discussed will be the Ayam Cemani chicken of Indonesia, a rare breed whose entire body is black. Not just feathers, but head, beak, eyes, legs and even the insides.
Oxitec, a British biotech company, plans to release an experimental mosquito population in the Florida Keys genetically engineered to combat dengue fever. Local residents are concerned for a number of reasons, such as the lack of testing done, and the sudden introduction of a non-native species into the local population.
Are mosquitoes just the tip of the iceberg? According to some accounts, genetically modified “micro humans” could be used in scientific testing within two years. Although the dangers of genetically engineered humans should be obvious, the benefits could outweigh the cost if there is the possibility of eradicating diseases and potentially find a cure for the greatest disease of all: aging and death.

More and more people are raising chickens due to the inhumane practice of factory farms and use of antibiotics. For folks that wish to grow food organically, locally and sustainably, raising chickens has become the most popular method. Across America, municipalities are allowing and even encouraging residents to keep laying hens within city limits. Expert, Patricia Foreman, author of CITY CHICKS: Keeping Micro-flocks of Chickens as Garden Helpers, Compost Makers, Bio-recyclers and Local Food Suppliers is certainly leading the way. Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, as host, June Stoyer is joined by special guest, Patricia Foreman to discuss how to raise chickens in your urban environment.

For this discussion, I have enlisted the help of a few more of my YouTube friends. We'll start the show with Pooter1176 http://www.youtube.com/user/Pooter1176 He has a typical coop and run, with plans for building chicken tractors to allow the birds to have fresh food on a daily basis. Following will be Don, aka MeanEvilConservative http://www.youtube.com/user/meanevilconservative He's a fellow Virginian with a few years of raising chickens, ducks, and quail. Whether it's laying hens or meat birds, he has a pretty good knowledge of what it takes to raise them. And to close out the show, we'll have PetPrepper http://www.youtube.com/user/PetPrepper she’s been grooming animals for over 20 years and can give you some insight on dealing with extreme cold. She's pretty far north and has been working on ways to prevent frozen eggs.

With the cost of eggs and chicken in the stores, and the uncertainty of exactly where they came from or what they have been fed, I’d like to start raising my own chickens. But unlike gardening, I know very little about chickens. I know barbecue wings with ranch dressing make a great snack. And I know that I don’t like my yolks runny. Beyond that, I’m clueless. I have so many questions. What breed is best for egg layers? What breed is best for meat? What is the best method for raising them…free range or a coop? How well do the chicken tractors work? Are there any foods that a chicken shouldn’t eat? How do you take care of them in the winter? I could do some research online and maybe get some answers. But I’d prefer to hear from someone with first-hand experience. Join us on this edition of "Preparing to Provide" for what promises to be a very informative and entertaining discussion about all things pertaining to chickens.

Finally ISIS are racking up their own fatalities and losses. About time. But this is a Nomadic enemy who is willing to fight anywhere. We will never defeat an enemy who is willing to die for their Cause. They are stronger in thier Faith than Christians. And just like with the Kamikazes in Pearl Harbor, we are at a disadvantage. Join me Tonight for what will be a "Spirited" Conversation to say the least.
