No Cage Eggs

Well, just when you think you've seen it all. I was at Kroger yesterday doing some needed grocery shopping and as I was grabbing an 18 pack of eggs that were on sale ($ .99) I noticed an egg carton for sale. It was the animal rights version of eggs. These are the eggs for people that like to treat the animal good before eating it. I guess farmer Brown lets the chickens roam all over the farm and he picks up the eggs wherever they drop. The funny thing is, these eggs were going for about $2.50 per dozen. I couldn't help but laugh about it.

Alright Brad...
I have to say something about this one... If anyone has seen that infamous documentary about chicken farms they know how disgusting chickens are there. No cage eggs are not only good for chickens but they are infinitly healthier eggs for people too. And if you want a step up from no-cage eggs... try organic Omega 3 eggs. Them's good eggs ! You can just tell by how yellow the yolk is and how clear the slimy part is... Now, I'm a bit of a food snob but if your serious about eating a lot of eggs in your lifetime- No cage, organic and Omega 3 are the way to go.

I know that chicken farms are nasty, and that is why I don't work at one or care to watch videos on it. I also like hamburgers and steaks. However, these animals are raised to be slaughtered and eaten. If you want to see something really nasty, there is a place in Middletown, Oh that slaughters horses. You should go on a tour of that place. My point is, we are all put on this Earth for a purpose, and I think a chicken's existance is to be eaten.

Yeah, but my point is that chicken farms are escp. nasty because thier nature is VERY territorial. Therefore they are pecking themselves to death. Also they are fed so many hormones and are inbreed so much they hardly even resemble chickens anymore.
Now, what you eat is your own business... If you want to go for eggs from malnurished and hormone pumped mutant chickens' butts be my guest! But for the information of your readers there is a healthier alternative at their local grocer... and that alternative is there for a good reason. It wouldn't be if lots of people have come to this same conclusion.
Yeah, I agree... chickens and their eggs taste good... they are to be eaten! But, humans have intervened and screwed up the chickens and their eggs for the sake of quanity and cost and at the expense of nutrition.

Yeah, I like to make sure my thanksgiving turkey is a "free range turkey", because when I sit down to eat the sumbitch I want to know that it got to run around and live the good life before it was slaughtered for my family's celebration of thanksgiving.

Nobody is going to laugh when bird flu gets here!
Except me and I'm gonna be singing, "I told you so!"
