    Well I guess your not technicaly a vegan if you eat eggs, I just mean people that don't eat store bought eggs.

    I'm not vegan, nor do I eat store bought eggs any longer. I think you'll find that most people who DO raise chickens wont eat store bought eggs...

    Well I mainly mean people that don't believe in killing animals for food and don't support factory farm eggs or milk.

    I thought a vegan doesn't use any animal products....whether it's meat to eat or leather for their shoes.

    And no, I'm not one.

    Yesterday I was at the store and bought some cage free pesticide/antibiotic/hormone free organic eggs because I thought I was going to be baking (and only had 2 at home from Ellie, recovering from an illness) - even at that I hesitated because I worried about the conditions for the birds - and I decided to stay in that part of the store for awhile to quietly watch what type of eggs people bought. Without exception, they all bought factory farm/commercial eggs without any hesitation whatsoever. Much educating still needs to be done........I'd wager that if more people knew what conditions the hens endured, they would at least think twice. At least I hope so.

    The reality is most people don't care or even give it a thought where their food comes from.

    I think mostly people think with their checkbook. They can buy a dozen factory eggs for about the same as it costs me to produce them myself. I'll never eat another factory egg again. As for being vegan, I'm probably the opposite. I raise my own cattle, hogs, and chickens and have a large garden plus several fruit trees and berry patches. We eat a lot of meat and veggies as well as eggs but we know what went into the production of all of them. Happy animals, good eats. I AM a member of an art collective in which several members are vegan. I know from practice that we can all get along as long as we respect each other's informed decisions.
