Eggs

Diet : “Monk estimates there are less than 10 major producers of certified organic eggs in Australia, but he says the drought has contributed to this because the cost of feed has risen. An end to the drought could lead to more companies seeking certified organic status for their eggs.”

We are trying to get rid of factory farmed eggs…farmed being used loosely. It’s taken us too long to wake up, but now we have , it now seems to be hard to be sure we are purchasing the right eggs from happy, well looked after hens. For a start, fresh eggs cook better. They taste better , cakes, biscuits and omelettes are better. You can see and taste the difference and other people notice. If we have so few real producers they need to be listed. There needs to be an honour roll. We are trying to put care and consideration back into the looking after of our livestock and we are clear about that…so list the companies which do the right thing and just keep adding the ones which make the grade. On the net it’s easy and , quite frankly, it’s something we need to do for more products and producers. We can’t all keep chooks. My neighbours did and the smell was disgusting on a hot night. Suburbs aren’t really the place. There is no reason why we cannot have producers who can produce healthy eggs from healthy chooks.
