All of these terms confuse me. The only way, I suppose, to have a vegetarian chicken is to cage it or at least keep it in an enclosed environment. Otherwise they will eat worms, insects, anything they can peck at.

Anyone who has ever raised a chicken knows that.

And yes, the eggs we usually buy are not the ones I remember.

I have nothing against anyone buying eggs certified as anything, I just get confused by all the terms, i.e. organic, cage free, vegetarian.

Before criticizing a person, walk a mile in his shoes - then you are a mile away and you have his shoes!

I just got asked by a friend of my sister if my eggs were organic. She has been getting her friends to save egg cartons for me...
I had to tell her no. Technically they aren't, because I feed them veggies, but the veggies I buy are not organic and their feed is not stamped organic either, plus I also use insecticide and herbicide on my property, and that's a no-no. As prevention so they do not get mites (hopefully) I have a "no mite" strip hanging in their coop. It is not supposed to affect the birds meat or eggs. Still, that means they aren't considered organic.
I had to wonder if my sister's friend even knows what organic is....

Give us this day our daily bacon.
