Ep 124: Day in the life of a Canadian Chicken Farmer

Peter Dyck is a self-described Chicken farmer, tractor driver, Ag fanboy. Not a bad background. Peter, also known as Pete, married into the chicken business and raises pullets, which are young female chickens destined for egg-laying. In our interview, Pete and I chat about that Canadian chicken farming looks like, what makes “free-range chickens” actually free-range, and how he got into drone filming, which has resulted in some awesome videos.
