  • 50c? Sure it is still fresh ? lol

    • I have got 8 boxes for my family and they look pretty good. Worth to give it a go.

      If you're boiling eggs you don't want them fresh or they're difficult to peel.

  • +7

    I guess people boycotting cage farmed eggs has worked. Soon they might disappear from the Bondi Junction store.

      Who cares about caged or free range? If people are so concerned about welfare of animals, stop eating eggs altogether.

      • +7

        You still can eat animal products and want them to live a cruelty-free life.

          You still can eat animal products and want them to live a cruelty-free life.

          Yes, that is called a moral dilemma. It has 3 possible resolutions: 1) stop eating animal products, 2) stop wanting them to live a cruelty-free life, 3) perpetuating the dilemma.

          Edit: 4th option - neg this comment and feel better about yourself.

          Yeah because de-beaking, overpopulation, de-feathering aren't cruel at all. Just cages. "Free range" chickens at 15,000 hens per hectare are happy as Larry :)

          @magicmoose: Hey, according to these welfare advocates at least these hens don't have to share those hectares with their brothers who are all killed at a day. Plus they get to "leave" the moment their egg production wanes below what their younger sisters can do.

          @thevofa: just wait for all the meat eaters try to explain how it's possible to care about an animal's welfare while also participating in its abuse, exploitation and killing

        Surprisingly, you can tell a difference in the eggs that come from a sad cage chicken vs. a happy range-free one. If you want the ultimate in good eggs, get your own hens, then feed them fresh food and allow them to roam around your back yard. You'll be amazed at how much better eggs can be.

        • My friend got 8 chickens and he has full supply of eggs. I think 5-6 per day.

        • @danger163:

          I think 5-6 per day.

          Everydays ….

        • How much does each Hen cost and what are the upkeep cost on a weekly average??

        • @HarveySpecter:
          I haven't bought hens for a long time, but check your local agricultural produce stockist. They'll likely either have some hens or know where you can get them, plus they can supply food and fencing as required. The last time I kept chickens I had 6, and at the time I costed out that they'd pay for themselves in a couple of months. Unless you have eggs every day you'll likely find that your supply starts to overtake the demand, at which point sell your excess eggs to your neighbours (say, for $2/half doz.) and that'll help lower the upkeep.

        It's quite clear that most people don't actually care about animal welfare. They just want to feel better about themselves without actually doing anything.

        • -1

          I care about animal welfare, I never buy cage eggs and always use the CluckAR app and scan the carton label to check the stocking density of the eggs I buy.

        • -2

          @Scab: if you eat meat, eggs, or dairy, you don't care about animal welfare. You are directly responsible for animals being harmed and killed.

          But I'm glad checking an app makes you feel better

    I always buy cage eggs, I don't want them roaming around all day not focusing on their job.

  • Fun fact, hens don't need a cock to lay eggs.

    • +1

      Fun fact, hens don't need a cock to lay eggs.

      False. All hens have a cock brother but he is killed at a day old since he is useless to the egg industry. The cock is a statistical certainty, therefore necessary.

      • False.

        True, they don't need a cock to lay eggs, only to reproduce.

        The cock is a statistical certainty, therefore necessary.

        Not to lay eggs, the commercial eggs you buy aren't fertilised.

        • +2

          You seem to not have a grip on the (should be) obvious fact that birds, like us, are usually born with either male or female reproductive organs, and that only the females can lay eggs, therefore the males are useless to human our exploitative endeavors.

          10000 females in the field, no matter how free range, equals 10000 males in the rubbish bin. Welfare.

        • @thevofa:

          You seem to not have a grip on the (should be) obvious fact

          You seem to not be able to read what I posted.

          10000 females in the field, no matter how free range, equals 10000 males in the rubbish bin.

          That's entirely different to what I posted and I never said a word about free range.

          Those 10000 females don't need a male to lay eggs, a male being killed so they could be born is a different argument and again has nothing to do with what I said.

        • @Scab:

          hens don't need a cock to lay eggs.

          Wrong. They need them, just not while they are laying.

          And it's not a male being killed, it's 10000 males per 10000 females.

          If you want to play logical semantics to feel better about exploiting innocent birds and having them killed at a day old for no necessary reason then that's your call. But perhaps it would be better to properly and honestly address the issue of welfare that you are so vocal about.

          @thevofa:

          just not while they are laying

          Which is what I said.

          If you want to play logical semantics

          My original post about the cock was a joke until you became triggered.

    This post has been the easiest game of spot the vegan I've played all month.

  • think of what PETA would say

  • Cage eggs are cruel.

    • Eggs are cruel

      • How so?

  • My local Coles has been discounting cage eggs last couple weeks, it was $2 and then down to $1.50 on the weekend.

    On a whim I decided to build a chook coup with my 7yo son in the May school holidays.

    We found a local egg farm that sell pullets for $18 each, we got 2. They are ISA browns, bred for laying. Within a few days they were both laying. We picked up a 3rd hen last school holidays and now have 3 eggs per day every day.

    The 3 girls happily share our backyard with our 9yo German shepherd and they are great to have around and funny to just sit and watch. Great value animals to keep if you have a bit of grass for them to roam around on.
