    This is for the cage-free eggs:

    Now, I eat eggs, IF I can get them from my dad, who has a flock of twenty chickens that have all the access they want to 60 acres. Now, that’s a chicken who lives a natural life, not stuffed in a barn with thousands of other chickens. Now, I’m not saying this is for everyone, especially because I don’t expect everyone to have my set of values. But I don’t see how those who do eat commercial cage-free eggs can feel okay about it after seeing pictures of what it’s really like.

    I think the brown eggs are a nice touch, makes them look all natural and stuff. Do people know that it’s the type of chicken that makes the brown eggs, not the living conditions?

    Lazurii–I volunteer for a local group to educate people about where (most) eggs come from, and no, I do not think that most individuals realize that the egg color is determined by the kind of chicken; I have had more than one person ask whether brown eggs are from healthier, happier birds. The level of ignorance I have encountered from otherwise intelligent people on the subject of eggs is really surprising!
