Open mouth insert egg...

This is the link to a blog-post I recently found on a South African blog. The post deals with an article that was written for a South African running magazine. The article discusses the long standing question of whether the eggs being sold in South Africa as "Free Range" are actually free range. The author of the article (who in my opinion should have the word moron branded on his forehead) Matthew Kadey, advises readers that in the absence of proof that these eggs are indeed free range, we should all buy "regular eggs" - translate that into exactly what it means, and he is advising us to buy battery eggs.

So Matthew Kadey, moron extraordinaire, advises we should buy eggs which we know are produced under dodgy circumstances and clearly in an inhuman and unhealthy manner rather than buy eggs which may or may not be free range. Does this silly man not realise that the more we support battery produced eggs and chickens the more they will flourish. It is the age-old concept of supply and demand.

Surely we should be pushing for more stringent laws governing this entire industry rather than giving up, sticking our heads in the sand and leaving it as someone elses problem?

It astounds me that a modern health and sporting magazine would support such ridiculous opinions.

So what you are saying is that we all need to "scramble" to the shops and get our free range eggs today!

Thanks for the link-back and spreading the word! Your previous commentor is on the right track...perhaps if we did all 'scramble' madly, there'd be more demand for the real thing, and dodgy farmers would be squeezed off the shelves.

Just get some hens for your garden how much free range can you get? Added bonuses they keep the grass short and fertilise the lawn.
