Leading Bird Flu Expert Dr. Michael Greger added to MCC
Dr. Greger confirmed the information that has been put forth by many of the other chicken experts in our Mad City Chickens film…namely, that chickens kept in cramped, overstressed unnatural conditions, the conditions found on many of the so-called factory farms, are the ones most likely to contract this virus. In addition, he made it clear that the keeping of small flocks of pastured birds, birds that are kept outside in the sun and wind, are not a danger.
Additional thanks go to Cheryl Long, Editor-in Chief Mother Earth News, Tabitha Alterman, Associate Editor Mother Earth News, and Erin Williams of The Humane Society of the United States for their assistance in setting up initial contact with Dr. Greger.
