There was an egg carton sitting on the table in the kitchen that somebody had given us. On the carton it advertises the eggs as coming from "Vegetarian chickens". I believe the company that sold the eggs was Egglands Best, but that statement just struck me as strange. Chickens are omnivores and naturally eat a very varied diet of both meat AND veggies. In fact, our eggs look much nicer when they get lots of supplemental scraps from the kitchen. IDK, to me it just sounds unnatural to have vegetarian hens! That would be like feeding a black bear veggies for the rest of it's life! I don't really see the point either. I could see organic, but vegetarian??
