• Vegan...With an exception

    Hey, everyone! I wanted to get a little input on this subject: So, I’ve been vegetarian on and off since 7th grade (About 5 years) and I’m transitioning to veganism, but there’s a catch. I recently purchased chickens and I’ll be raising them in my backyard and collecting eggs, so I don’t see why I shouldn’t eat those eggs since I know exactly where they’re coming from and that the chickens are being treated well.
    I guess what I’m asking is if you guys would do the same thing, and why or why not?
    Thanks for the input!

    I know a lot of people would disagree with me but personally I would eat them. I know Veganism is about not benefiting from animals but, you know where they are coming from and you know the chickens are happy and healthy. You have to keep your diet with what best suites you and not worry about the label “Vegan” I don’t think one exception to your diet would be so bad.

    In my opinion, I think you can do what you’d like, so you can eat the eggs if you’d like. But it’s not vegan. I personally would take LittleLotte’s idea and passing them onto family. But, what you’re doing is a lot better than what’s happening to factory farmed chickens(:

    You couldn’t call yourself vegan if you did eat them.

    If I ever had rescued chickens in my care that laid eggs, I might pass some of the eggs onto friends/family to prevent them buying eggs but I’d never eat them myself.

    Part of veganism isn’t just the cruelty aspect, but they do not eat eggs because we don’t need to steal from another animal to survive. Not being mean, but just explaining to you that’s why most vegans don’t consider eggs from your own chickens vegan.

    No, I wouldn’t. For me, veganism is a philosophy, a set of morals, a lifestyle, not just a way of eating. I consider animals as I do humans, with respect, compassion and kindness. :)

    How do I explain my life story in 140 characters or less? So I am Shannon, I am currently a sophomore and I am a proud vegan. I am vegan because I do not want to support animal cruelty. Harry Potter fanatic and I am most likely the awkwardest person you'll ever meet. I play the piano a lot. Proud introvert by day, protagonistic butterfly by night.
