Have you ever wondered why those crazy people insist upon getting eggs from pastured chickens who are treated humanely, or those other crazy people who (gasp!) raise their own eggs from their own happy chickens?
I can show you why.
First, here is a photo of an egg from one of our Americauna chickens, who you’ve seen grow up on this blog:
Next we have the same Americauna egg, with an egg laid by one of our own Australorps, which are the black chickens you’ve seen here on my blog.
Finally, you will have no trouble seeing what a standard, grocery store, mistreated chicken’s egg looks like. I don’t even need to tell you which one it is.
Yeah, the store egg looks almost … sick.
So now you know, at least here in our country, why we seek expensive eggs… and even raise our own.
