If a Chicken Never ...

If a chicken never sees the sun, never gets to hunt for food in thick grass, never gets to take a dirt bath with her friends, never gets to flirt with a rooster, can she lay an egg?

She’ll lay something, but can you call it an egg?

Isn’t it odd that supermarket egg cartons never show pictures of how the chickens laying the eggs live? You might see idyllic pictures of chickens prancing around on green grass, but you never see pictures of chickens crowded five to a cage, or on the so called “free-range“ or “cage-free“ eggs, you never see pictures of tens of thousands of chickens packed into hen houses where they never see the sun or grass, and can’t move an inch without bumping into each other.



Are those things really eggs? I say not. Once you’ve tasted the egg from a chicken who spent the day scratching through grass, brush, and woodland, digging up juicy earthworms, catching bugs in midair, and snagging a field mouse or two, you’ll wonder why you ever considered supermarket eggs as food.
