Not too hard to tell which egg is the factory egg and which is the farm egg; and I promise, this was not tweaked in Photoshop to dramatize the difference.
I was going to call this post the “city egg vs the country egg,” but my dad, who lives about 10 minutes away down the freeway from downtown Los Angeles, gets homegrown eggs from the next door neighbor who has chickens running around in his yard.
I imagine that if one were to do a chemical analysis of the two eggs, there would probably not be that much difference between them, but I certainly do like the idea of eating an egg that has come from a chicken that can walk around on her two feet and flap her wings and take a dust bath, and eat a bug….
Like my cousin’s chickens…
I have visited an egg factory, and those hens do not have a very good life.
