So then I didn't think much about it till I read today's Times of India. ('Egging you on' page 23). I can't find it on the TOI website but I'm sure you won't miss it if you read TOI in Bombay.
The article goes on to give the health 'benefits' of eating eggs and also on the side has a tiny write up about how, by feeding vegetarian feed to chicken, the eggs can be termed 'vegetarian' and sold to vegetarians as a vegetarian product. Also goes on to say that the egg was not going to be fertilised anyway meaning the chick isn't going to come out of that egg so what's the harm in eating an unfertilised egg?
Can someone tell me how the reproductive fluid of another animal be sold as being okay for vegetarians just because they're feeding it vegetarian feed?
