The vast majority of grocery store eggs are produced by factory farmed hens. Imagine stuffing 25 chickens in a space as big as a shopping cart. The cages are kept by the hundreds in large buildings where dirt and feces pile up fast. Some farms clean these buildings as infrequently as once per year or less. If you’ve ever been in or anywhere near one of these farms, you probably know the smell does not increase the appetite, for eggs or anything else.
