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