  • My mother used to live on a farm, and I used to drive out to buy eggs from a fairly large local producer that sold most of their non-standard-sized eggs out of their store.

    My understanding is that new layers lay smaller eggs (peewee or pullet sized), while the longer they have been laying, the larger the eggs become, until they are jumbo or super-jumbo. Double yolk eggs are most common in the spring, and most double yolk eggs are jumbo or super jumbo. Most eggs sold in the store are now large or extra-large. If you buy your eggs in a supermarket, you probably never see the larger sizes that would have double yolks.

    • Had a customer come out and offer me home made cookies. I politely declined, saying I was allergic to wheat. He denied that there was wheat in the cookies and started listing off the ingredients, starting with flour.

        constantly amazes me.. when people ask what I do not eat I after I say grains, I have to clarify that means bread etc. Always a shock..

          That's similar to my story. It's amazing how people don't make that connection. What do people think makes flour? Or do they consider it to be its own magical substance?

            Yep. The confusion is because there is "100% whole wheat" bread, "whole wheat" bread (where whole wheat need only be the first grain listed in the ingredients list), "white" bread (made from refined wheat flour), and "wheat" bread (made from refined wheat flour with coloring added to make it look like whole grain). "Wheat bread" exists to scam people who want to buy whole wheat bread into thinking that the brown colored white bread they are buying is different from white bread without coloring added.

              We have 30 free roaming/pastured chickens. The older they get the less often they lay an egg. Right now we get about 16 to 24 eggs per day.
              Our Red Star girls are little machines and lay the most. The buff orpingtons and the brahmas lay huge, extra large eggs. The only time we get 'double olkers' (that's what my youngest called them), is when they first start to lay eggs.
              Some people just need a sympathetic pat... On the head... With a hammer.

              • I was buying dogfood today. The Wolf Cub gets the really pricey grain free stuff from a little boutique pet store cuz he's worth it. Anyway, to my shock and horror, they were also selling this stuff

                Natural Balance Vegetarian Dog Food. What is wrong with some people's minds? If you want to wreck your own health by being veg, that is your choice but when you force an animal to eat an unnatural diet for its species, that is abusive, IMO.

                The owner said he totally agreed with me but that the vegetarian clients are willing to pay big bucks for that stuff.

                SMH.

                • My girlfriend and I were deciding on what to feed our puppy and we saw vegan dog food. I thought the same thing...that's animal abuse.
                  I wish I liked to eat liver.

                      Well, we all know that vegetarianism is a more highly evolved state of humanity. Don't you want your doggies to be highly evolved too?

                      • I decline a donut every Friday, because every Friday the PHB brings in donuts. Each Friday, I say I don't eat wheat and don't trust their oil not to be a known allergen. This Friday, he bumbles into my office with a triumphant grin on his face: "It's peanut oil! You can have a donut!"
                        "I still can't eat wheat, but thank you for checking."
                        "It's flour, not wheat."
                        *facepalm*
                        Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                        • Hi! First time posting in this thread (but it's my favorite one to read!!)


                          I had a discussion with a friend about healthy eating for the first time. It went kinda like this:

                          Me: I know it's popular belief that eating loads of meat isn't healthy, but when you think about it, it has tons of nutrients and I've never heard of anyone being allergic to meat either. So especially when coming from pastured cattle it's seems like a safe nutrient-dense source of food.... (etc. etc. I might have added sth about WAPF and his studies, organ meats...)

                          Her: But... no! (shaking her head in confusion) I really think eating loads of meat is not healthy.. really not!
                          Me: Why?
                          Her: It can't be healthy
                          Me: ...

                          • Dogs can be vegetarian or vegan, but cats can not.

                            I had a dog with severe skin issues and it turned out to be an allergy to chicken. He did fine on Duck and Potato food and eventually Lamb and Rice, but a vegetarian diet was thrown out as an option.

                            • I was at a restaurant recently that advertised "Eggs from 100% vegetarian chickens!" Why advertise the fact that these eggs are from chickens that are raised in factories and prevented from eating the grubs found in their natural diet?

                                Our dogs are on a raw diet. Up until recently, they still had some grains in the form of treats, but we've since replaced those with dehydrated liver.

                                Huge smelly BM's and room clearing farts are a thing of the past.

                                The diet we feed them now is purchased at the market, along with our own food. They get regular ground beef, beef bones, pork bones, chicken carcasses, romaine lettuce, pure pumpkin, eggs (with the shells!) and fish oil.
