This is an old thread, but I specifically searched for this topic because I have the same issue. Of course I know, rationally, they taste good, they are organic, my hens are happy and comfortable. Heck, eggs are the perfect food!!It's so nice to know I'm not the only one!
But the eggs from MY hens...my girls, my pets... hheeeyyuuuuk! Tummy does a real flip.
I was completely surprised by this discovery. My family raised backyard birds when I was a teen, and no problem. But now, I crack a fresh egg from my newly laying birds and nearly gag.
I dont think it is a disconnect from the world of farming and where our food comes from. I think I am TOO connected.
Nothing to do with chicken butts or dirt or sanitary egg cartons.
Everything to do with the emotional attachment to the birds.
I'd love to know where you stand today.
