I cook a lot and one of the main ingredients are eggs, sometimes I use handmade substitutes but I also use my own chickens eggs. I never use store bought because I know of the abuse, yet I do have my own chickens. They lay a ton of eggs and knowing they are not fertile I suspect it is okay to eat them and still call myself vegan. I’m not particularly sure so I would love some advice! Thanks <3
The problem is that chickens need eggs after they’re laid for nutrients they’ve lost. Chickens lay eggs so often they (usually) eat their own eggs if they haven’t been fertilised. This is completely normal and natural. Google it a bit and see what you find 🙂 If they don’t eat them then I don’t think it would be wrong to eat them but I know I wouldn’t. I don’t think humans are meant to eat animal products and they aren’t meant for us. Maybe give them to friends though so they don’t buy eggs that have came from cruelty? Its up to you 🙂
Not vegan, no but it’s more compassionate than majority of vegetarians who eat eggs and no other animal products. If someone is going to eat eggs, though it is better not to, then they should be from pet hens looked after properly and whom will die of old age.
