Great entry, Jasmin. I only hope that more people realize, as you say, it doesn't matter what label the eggs have- small farm or big, organic, or "humane"...the end result is typically the same for these sentient, inquisitive, social birds. The only way to truly be kind is to not eat eggs or other animal products. Thanks for your very informative and enlightening blog entry, I hope many people catch on!

That last picture is priceless!!

Thanks for putting this post together. I honestly feel that the egg industry is the cruelest out there, perhaps even when compared to foie gras. I'm vegan and have been for years, but if absolutely forced to choose, I'd buy an actual dead chicken before I bought a carton of eggs--there'd be less suffering involved that way.

This is sooooo good. It reminds me of your workshop on birds a couple of years ago (where I met you and Marisa). I just posted the link to this post on Twitter. It's great information to have at hand when someone asks about eggs and "why not eat them". Cheers!
