I can't believe that those kind of places are legal to operate-to me it is just leagl loan sharking.
Killing him is not the answer(how could he help pay it off if he is dead),

I agree with you Baymule.
On our little farm all the animals have a job, which pays thier way, if and when they can no longer pay for thier way, then they have to go. So if an animal has an injury we have to weigh the cost of vet treatments vs the value of what the animal will give to us.
I haven't kept that close of a track of the price of feed vs what I make.
I pay 13.00 for 50lbs of layercrumbles,no place around here to get it cheaper. I off set that price by feeding scrapes and stuff out of garden.I freeze veggies afor the hens so I have stuff year around and raise squash...
Seem as if alot of us sell eggs.
I usually sell anywhere from 6dz or more a week.
I have a friend who lives in an retirement apt complex in town and she can sell as may as I can get to her.
I only charge 2$ a dz its a good deal for the poeple and off sets my feed bill.
