But, this is what really happens
So many chickens crammed into a dark factory chicken house with no room to move much less spread their wings. Oh, and so called "free range" just means they open a door for 45 minutes a day, but the chickens never get to go out. The fact is that extra money you are shelling out for cage free or free range, is just money down the drain, those eggs are just the same as the standard supermarket variety. Those chickens that lay your eggs will never see the sunshine, never scratch in the dirt, never run around, they live out their productive lives on a space no larger than a sheet of paper.
What can we do, you might ask? Well buy your eggs from a farmer, go pick them up, get in touch with your food, after all what we eat becomes a part of us. We should at least see how it is produced. If going out to a farm is out of the question consider a farmers market, there are many that are open year round. You will find that the prices are not that different from those false statements from the grocery store. It's time we all start buying our food from local farmers and producers. The average morsel of food travels an average of1500 miles before it reaches your plate. Think of the gas we could save if we just bought our eggs from your local farmer
