I told my sister-in-law that people have been hatching eggs from Trader Joe's. Her husband asked me, "Why would someone sit on an egg for that long when chickens are as cheap as they are?" I refrained from responding with a long-winded explanation about responsible animal husbandry and healthier food.... respect for life...... blah blah... It's just wasted on people like him. He came with us to pick out our birds. He watched them grow. He always tells me eggs are cheaper at the store, and less work. All I responded with was, "Because they can."
