Happy Hen Farm

National Animal Identification System

Say the Magic Word

Roll your cursor over the chicken to see her in disguise.

If you keep, or want to keep, a few hens or other small livestock animals then you need to be aware of the pending National Animal Identification System (NAIS) legislation. The legislation will impact flocks of every size, from massive 200,000 bird commercial flocks on down to our measly 11 chickens. Here at Happy Hen Farm we are against the legislation and that's all we're going to say about it. We encourage you to research the issue and make up your own mind.

For a con stance regarding NAIS legislation take a look at the following websites.
