Letter – Some eggs are better

Some eggs are better

Re: Chicken Little and the big business of eggs, March 22-28

One oversight in your great article on eggs last week. The director of factory farm Island Eggs claims there is no difference, nutritionally, between factory eggs and organic farm eggs. This is nonsense. Many studies have shown that eggs from chickens that root around outside eating grubs, worms, etc. — i.e, what chickens are supposed to eat — are nutritionally far superior to eggs from chickens in airless barns who are fed corn meal and antibiotics.
