The chicken you buy at the grocery store might contain hormones or steroids that are potentially dangerous to your health. In tonight’s Arklatex green, a Shreveport man shows us another alternative. Nbc 6 reporter Karen Hopkins discovered a lot about the bird many of us eat for dinner. His nickname is the “Chicken Man.” Andy Shehee of Shreveport, loves and cares for about a 100 birds. Hes done it, as a hobby, since he was a kid. “This is the chicken yard. Weve had it since 1960. Ive been raising chickens since I was 5 years old." Shehee raises his two legged friends, the old fashioned way. He says the chicken you buy in the store, are often fed a grain mixture, that contains growth hormones. Shehee believes the old saying, “you are what you eat.” “This is a green operation. They eat lettuce clippings donated from Georges Grill. It is a very rustic operation." He donates or gives chickens and eggs to friends. Shehee says the green diet makes their eggs have less cholesterol and a richer yolk, which is better for baking. The chicken man has about 20 breeds, from all over the world. These guineas are from Africa. With Easter around the corner, everyone enjoys the colored eggs from the Araucana chickens. Shehee donates a case of eggs every Tuesday to the Shreveport rotary club raffle.
