Inside look at a cage-free egg farm

    This is why one cannot just assume that organic/free-range/cage-free/everything you see that's marketed as better/healthier/better for the animals is legit.

    Don't buy into popular narratives on anything without doing a bit of research first yourself, IMO.

  • Chickens are nasty critters, and this is old news because I have raised chickens multiple times and have seen them in their actions.

    Chickens that are allowed to forage produce better eggs. It's simple.

  • Almost clicked the link, then I saw it was Huff Post. I agree with the premise though, any marketing buzz word doesn't mean you're getting what you think you're getting. The best way to buy 'organic', etc is to buy local, from an actual person or from a vendor that actually knows each farmer that supplies their store.

  • I've been drinking 2 raw, mass-produced, laid-by-a-chicken-in-a-tiny-cage eggs every morning for the past several months, and I couldn't be happier with this cheap, delicious, nutritious meal. I feel great.

  • I refuse to even touch any egg that I didn't personally watch fall out of the egghole from whence it came.

    I'd rather not know where my food comes from. My mind will make it into a bigger issue than it needs to be. Ignorance is bliss.

    I believe Zeb was referring to the Egg Machine at McDonalds.
