Noted & email sent.I don't live in PA but does it matter? I tried to put it as a business matter so if you are unsure then perhaps this will help.

Dear Mr Linvill

Recently I was talking to a friend of mine about taking my children to visit your farm. She advised me that she had just visited and was appalled at the condition that she found the poultry, including turkeys, and peacocks in.

Surely if you wish to have a continual stream of visitors then a clean, tidy yard with animals which are obviously well cared for would be the best way forward? Keeping too many birds together in a cage which have not been cleaned and with no water does not make for a good appearance as does insufficient shade. Surely it would be simple to release some of the birds, clean the cages and to put up something to provide shade? It is no difficult to put down bowls with water in. Happy healthy birds produce eggs and make people far more willing to visit and, possibly, buy eggs. Perhaps a vet could discuss this with you as well as having a look at the various fowl?

Once I hear that these simple measures have been taken I would be pleased to visit and, perhaps, encourage other people to.

Kind Regards

And this place is open to the public?????This place should be closed down and the people prosecuted for animal cruelty. I live next door to a dairy farm which is difficult as I am a Vegan and hate what they do, I am moving soon. This farm by me keeps the calfs is small pens and never clean them out untill they move them. Just recently I had a go at them for the filthy conditions the calfs near me were in, they had been in this building for 6 months and never cleaned out, just new straw put on top of all the mess. The back end of the building is very dark and they stay there for months. I hate farmers and this place is getting far to big. Anyway it has all been cleaned out now but more calfs are now being put in there. It really gets me down with the crying from the babies when they take them off their Mothers, I have also told them about that. WHY AM I HERE?????????????????
