First, I fried up some bacon this morning. Then I cooked my taters in the bacon grease. Then, I cracked out two eggs, one a brown free range egg that was purchased locally, and the other a Giant Eagle factory farm egg. I was aghast at the difference. Perhaps we don't know what is good for us??? Syd is healing up quite nicely...without a vet. I was afraid to take him to a vet...even if I would have had the trip funded. The systems idea about what is acceptable looks like it is way below the bar. I think if people could see the difference up close, they would never settle for the standards that are legally acceptable. I had a great breakfast this morning in spite of the grease. I couldn't help but notice how unhealthy the grade A egg that I bought last week from Giant Eagle, looks puny and pale in comparison to eggs bought locally from happy chickens.
