Much has been made of the farmer whose chickens laid yolkless eggs, near the Waterloo wind farm, mentioned in articles in The Australian.
Sinister? Maybe it’s not such a worry.
The following was a letter published in the Mid North Broadcaster in Burra, South Australia:
Speculation that wind farms are bad for you because they effect chooks by making them lay eggs without yolks is not true.
At this time of the year the chooks are moulting and getting new feathers, so this causes the chooks to stop laying or lay eggs without a yolk.
I know this because I breed chooks.
So lay off the wind farms.
