    They are at a large scale egg farm now , this should increase Byc folks egg sales if people pay attention to this nightmare at the caged egg farms [​IMG]

    Yeah I'm watching this right now WITH my husband! He's in shock... he's heard me talk and talk about how it works, and the FDA but now he sees it!

    He said he's seen the quality difference between our eggs and these FDA approved caged eggs and he doesn't understand why people WOULDN'T want to pay more knowing the animals have better treatment?! Who wouldn't?

    I never skimp on natural foods... I prefer better milk, and better eggs... yet I will buy the store brand cookies instead! Cut costs on other things... stand up, be an american and give a crap about your health and these animals!

    I prefer my ladies eggs... more people should home their own!

    It's on pigs right now. Hope it goes back to cows so my husband gets an idea why I want to raise my own.

    This is good ! A lot of people who have been clueless will be getting an education today.

    It seems to be pretty true to life and then they show the reverse. They're also showing what free range really is, how pigs are raised, etc. I think it's pretty neat.

    They are showing tours of actual farms so it's real footage , you can't exaggerate that. See it with your own eyeballs.​

    Basically they're showing the bad sides and the good sides. I think it's pretty awesome.
