Backyard eggs: are they cruelty-free?

November 16, 2016

I’ve seen a number of posts recently on Facebook from well-intentioned people questioning the ethics of “backyard eggs.” The rationale is that if the hens are treated well, what harm could there be in eating their eggs? It’s a reasonable question. But the answer may surprise you.

I found a terrific blog post from Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary on the subject, so I’m sharing it here with you.

As they say at Edgar’s Mission, if we can live happy and healthy lives without harming others, why wouldn’t we?
