We are losing a lot of the gene pool and I believe they also breed the heritage birds poorly so that people stop asking for them. They want people to raise the dumb chicken and they want people to eat GMO corn. When you get heritage bird from a reputable local small farm, you usually endup with chickens that are professional foragers.
