Newest Crime Against Political Correctness: Large Eggs These days liberals trying to find new things for us to feel guilty about really have to stretch but not as much as chickens laying large eggs: It might make a larger omelette but a bigger egg isn't necessarily a better one and it certainly doesn't make the hen that laid it very happy. That is the view of the chairman of the British Free Range Producers' Association, who says that if you want to be kind to hens, you should eat medium, not large or very large, eggs. "It can be painful to the hen to lay a larger egg," Tom Vesey, who keeps 16,000 hens on 45 acres at Dingestow, Monmouth, told The Times. "There is also the stress, which is a big problem as it takes more out of hens to lay large eggs. It would be kinder to eat smaller eggs." Christine Nicol, who is actually paid to be a Professor of Animal Welfare at the University of Bristol, claims that bloodstains have been spotted on large eggs. Government regulations limiting egg size will follow soon. I guess I need to tell my girls to stop with the big-uns and double yokers, Huh?
