Humane Society Charges Publix Egg Supplier with "animal abuse and food safety threats".

The Humane Society is claiming "rampant abuse of caged chickens and food safety issues after a recent undercover investigation of Publix Supermarkets main egg supplier, Cal-Maine Foods."  Read the story here. Read the full report here.

One common argument against backyard chickens in Sarasota is that people can buy a dozen eggs for $1.50 or 99¢, so they should not be allowed to keep chickens.

While anyone can calculate the price of eggs produced by caged layers, few take the time to determine the cost. Watch the video here.

After watching such a video, Sarasotans can hardly be blamed for wanting to know how their eggs are produced.
