I traveled to a new Mennonite bulk market shared by my Prairie Homemaker forum friend. While we waited for her to join us, Andrew and I took a look at the chickens set out for sale. (I know, I know, I think I just exposed us all to avian flu in the process.) Do you know what these healthy non-industrialized chickens were drinking from? Empty paint cans. Not "new" empty paint cans. Empty paint cans that still had visible dried layers of paint on the insides and the rim. Can you believe it?
