Today I was learning about battery-caged laying hens. Extremely unpleasant subject. Anyway, I am completely against egg factories and I was horrified to learn that an unnamed family member had bought TWO dozen brutally produced eggs for a birthday breakfast. Hey, our eggs are still less than three months old! Why not use them? Oh, well, I might be able to avoid every bit of egg. Obviously I am rather shocked. The pictures are unedited except for the writing. Note the uniform, dead look of the eggs in the top photo.
