As for sheep ... there are places (W Virginny?) where they're considered ... you know ... family.
I was curious so checked my grocery app. Store brand cage-free eggs are $3/dozen. The fanciest "small farm organic" ones are $6.30/dozen! (The cheapest "tortured-bird" ones are $1.70). Farm stand ones are usually pretty pricey too, but also taste way better.Around here, eggs in the store run from $1.29 to $1.99/dozen. (regular, non-hippie free-range organic eggs)
Eggs from local farmers/ranchers average around $4.00/dozen.
Why is there like an animal rights thing laced through this thread? I get not wanting to mistreat living things, no point in being unnecessarily cruel to random animals you encounter in day to day life, but there are definitely others that are culturally defined as food.
I can see and feel your deep identification with plants. Your posts often remind me, in depth and tone, of something a turnip would post.There's something comical about people who find eating plants is okay but eating something just because it moves is against the moral code.
Just because you don't see it moving doesn't mean it isn't something that is... Well.. alive.
I can only guess it comes from those with weak minds that can't wrap their heads around plants being alive - simply because they can't see emotions and crying faces and thus are limited to only what their eyes perceive.
All I can give you is my subjective personal experience. I generally just get the store bought carton, when I buy eggs at all. But my g/f (yeah, that's right, I'm 70 and have a g/f!) buys the elite farmer's market ones for probably around $4 a dozen, and, damn, but they sure taste better to me.That leaves the questions: "Are brown eggs really better? Or are free-range eggs better?"
You got THAT right. Home made chicken soup, or from a premium purveyor, is def the shiznit! Expensive, though. I just got a quart carton for a sick friend and it cost $15. Worth it if you willing to ante up, though. Always and ever, you get what you pay for.
You inspired me. As long as this second shot I got today doesn't knock me out, I'm riding to the city tomorrow and stopping in Chinatown for some of that roast BBQ pork and ducks they hang in the windowsI would buy a whole duck, cook some rice vermicelli and throw together a soup with the duck and that is a quick meal.
they always give me the half duck cut in half hanging there though. i always buy half a duck and some bbq pork. yuuuum.You inspired me.

Kroger has whole chickens, legs, and thighs all for $0.97/lb. on sale this week.
Eggs are lower too, about $1.29/dz large size.
Wings are the ones that are still high.
