Itchy and Scatchy

Nothing like some high powered research to confirm the bleeding obvious.

Check out this article from World Poultry on a comparison of external parasites found on hens in backyards and commercial cage environments.|worldpoultry|2016-03-09|Parasites_on_chickens:_backyard_v_commercial

 This is not including internal parasites which would entail a separate research program and probably come up with similar results as many of the internal parasites need to be ingested by scratching hens.

 While backyard hens must quietly suffer from the parasites this suffering seems to be ignored by the animal welfare groups.
