by: Paul Lieberman, Chester Goolrick | publication date: December 3, 1979 | Publication: Atlanta Constitution | pages: A1

"A whole family working for the normal salary of one person is not uncommon in north Georgia chicken country. Scores of other families work the same way on the chicken farms dotting the rolling pastureland. They are provided with houses similar to the Babbs', close to similar chicken sheds, and are paid a single weekly salary, commonly between $100 and $125, to look after the layers and collect the eggs."

The third installment in the series by Lieberman and Goolrick describes the involvement of whole families in work on poultry farms.
