What We Don't Think About When Buying A Carton Of Eggs

If you just get regular old eggs at the grocery store, you may be consuming eggs from chickens who were raised in "battery cages." Now, if this type of thing bothers you, you can look for cage-free eggs (not a perfect option, but better) or buy them at your local farmers market. Or you could take it several steps further and get your own little brood of chickens. Check this out and see if it makes sense for you and your neighborhood. (You should really look up your local laws first, though.)

Are urban (or rural) chickens an option for you?


If you made it this far, you get a *BONUS* pic of me with my chickens from a couple years back. :) (Yes, I got pecked several times whilst taking this photo.)
