Any body enjoyed the article about Whiting and his feathers/roosters in Dec/Jan Field&Stream magazine?

Thanks for the link, informative article, the PETA outlook doesn't surprise me. Never gave thought to the side of rooster raising.

From what I hear roosters get a better deal from Dr. Whiting than they do from the Egg Industry where the males are dispatched as soon as the bird's sex can be determined.
