    The only 'true' vegetarians are some humans. I have never seen an animal that was traditionally thought of as vegetarian turn down animal protein when it can get it.

    Exactly. That's why those stupid egg cartons proclaiming the chickens were only fed vegetarian feed makes me sad.​

    I guess so. Otherwise, I wouldn't see empty robin eggs on the ground during the spring.
