Where Do Your Eggs Come From?

I don't know if any of you know that in this day and age of fast this or instant that, our eggs are being obtained through extreme cruelty to hens.

As we announced earlier please do not eat at Kentucky Fried Chicken. To know why go to the top right hand corner, type the word 'Kentucky' and then click on Search blog and you will see RSC's entry on KFC.

Also do a search on 'battery hens' and learn of the shocking revelation of what an egg farm is really like. Gone are the idyllic days of when I used to go to the barn with a basket to pick up brown eggs from the hay while the mother hen was roaming about freely in my grandmother's backyard.

Today battery hens have never seen sunlight and their claws and feet are deformed from years of living in wire cages. Click on this link to read more about battery hens

For that reason RSC would like to inform you of a place in Kuala Lumpur where you can buy free range eggs. Buy it from Spice House or Syarikat MA Palaniandy Pillay, Jalan Tun Sambanthan Brickfields (next to Sing Kee restaurant). Great place for vegetarians too as they have a lot of vegetarian items sometimes not found elsewhere. It is not technically a vegetarian store but as many practising Hindus are vegetarians this shop caters to them I believe and has a good range for those of us who are particular how our food is derived.

I have been told the eggs from this store are from 'kampung' chickens that roam free. You have to ask for them though as they have the mass produced (I'm guessing battery hen eggs too)

Nick from Humane Society is working hard at trying to set up an accreditation board to get approval for special certificates to label meat and eggs as certified humanely derived. He is himself a vegetarian but accepts that if people must eat meat then at least let them insist on buying only from butchers or slaughter houses where the animals are humanely looked after and culled.
