    It looks photo shopped. Why is there an arm coming out of her back and why would you butcher a chicken with a baby so close to all the blood?

    No. Freedom of speech and all that. Look at the photo. Why is the an arm coming from her back? Why strap a baby on to b kill chickens? Makes no sense. Take the arm out off her back and put the child in a safe place THEN it's empowering.

    I was thinking the same thing Missy Rankin. Not so much the photo shop, but the salmonella and bacteria that chicken contains getting on the carrier or baby. Looks like someone that actually did the butchering is in the background and mom came up to inspect.

    That's probably dad in the background but she's definitely helping...I follow her blog, neat girl and yes, Beth, empowering. She's a go getter. Has her own cookbook.

    Great and funny article. I let mine out in the AM and PM before feeding (teach them to come when called) that way they get greens and bugs and are easier to get back in the pen before they do too much damage.Except for that durned old red biddy.
