Bald Eagles Killing Pasture-Raised Chickens.

Let’s talk animal welfare on chickens roaming freely in a pasture.  This 60,000 organic chicken farm in Georgia, reported the Fall 2016 Audubon Magazine, has about 75 Bald Eagles each consuming about 4 chickens per day costing this organic farmer about $1,000 per day.  When people picture chickens  roaming freely in a pasture, do they also consider the potential death loss to predators?
