Wow. I received an email from my neighbor this morning about what is going on at a large number of our nations egg producers. How very, very sad. Please, please consider purchasing your eggs from a local farm. Stop by and visit the farm and see how the animals are treated. Are they free to roam about the property? Do they appear to be well fed and happy? Are they clucking in a loud sing-song manner? You can tell a lot about how a chicken is feeling just by listening to their clucking. Animals need to live in an environment where they are cared for and where they can live out their lives in a humane manner. The eggs from free range eggs are so much better for you, too. An added bonus, if you ask me. Yes, they cost more. I charge $4 / dozen for my chicken eggs. However, it's well worth it. You don't support companies that do things like this. Please watch only if you are prepared to see some very disturbing footage.
Thanks for the consideration.
