'Eggs are almost vegetarian aren't they? No one is killed.' But actually eggs are about as vegetarian as meat. Humans are treating hens like machines to maximize profits
An egg laying hen is confined to a tiny cage for 2-3 years with 6-7 other hens in as much space as an A4 size sheet of paper. Sometimes solitary confinement is not a punishment. Squashed into that little space, causes extreme stress and constant egg laying depletes calcium from their bones making them prone to painful fractures.
While male chicks are killed by the thousands in every poultry farm, killed in terrible ways including suffocation, being gassed to death or being minced alive by machines. So take a look at these pictures and you decide.. are eggs still vegetarian?
