The Dodo Promotes Egg Consumption
The Dodo is promoting egg consumption now, in a move that really shouldn’t be much of a shocker to anyone paying attention. Vegans are livid over a video posted Tuesday by the major animal news website, showing a cage-free farm in New Zealand where chickens are free to roam in the grass before returning to roost and lay eggs for their owners. “Watch Happy Chickens Start Their Day on a Free-Range Egg Farm” the title says. May we instead suggest another article hosted by The Dodo, exposing that the “cage free egg” movement is largely a myth?
Humane Myth has also come up with this handy list of common practices, even on free-range farms, and it’s worth taking a peek at. In addition to being poorly regulated, practices such as beak cutting and male chick killing are still common on farms that have been certified as humane. There’s just no way to really know that the eggs you want to buy are the result of some kind of glorious “chicken stampede” video.
Animals are not ours to use, ever, no matter how happy they appear.
