Don’t we all want things yesterday? Yes, we do… yet the very things that we never got (and the sadness it brought!) turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to us, isn’t it?
Life, and not necessarily God works in mysterious ways. Yeah right! Look around you – Mother nature takes it own sweet time, doesn’t it?
There’s a season for everything – and yes, even a time and place. With autumn comes the end of a cycle while spring indicates the birth of a new one.
And quite strangely, we humans tend to stick our noses where they don’t belong – and which is why I liked Cruise’s Oblivion – and try to hurry things up, be it rearing produce or even animals. Or worst still, tend to forget that Nature cannot be tampered not unless we would like to face the consequences ourselves.
Yes, with one such case being chicken development, if you will…
A Note on the Production of Eggs
Yet there was one thing they knew was true: the food that they ate was grown the good old way. Yes, we’re talking about organic or natural grown foods minus the need for chemicals but which are necessary sometimes!
There was no understanding of nutrients or health science that is common knowledge but almost everyone of them lived to be a hundred years old.
What changed, one might ask – since most people struggle to live a healthy life when they reach retirement. Of course, there are many reasons why but probably one of them could be that the food we eat (and in this case, eggs!) are hardly produced (if one might call it that!) in a healthy way.
All the obvious health benefits of eggs, as determined by studies, get canceled out quite sadly, since this unnatural way of producing eggs has a clear downside that has been glossed for so long.
They aren’t machines, after all…
Organic Chicken Development – What Your Need to Know
Probably the first thing that one might have heard of, in recent times, is the way these poor chickens are treated with battery cage being the operative word.
Keep any living creature in a cage for a number of days and what you’re asking for is sheer trouble. Of course, we’re not animals, are we, you say?
Yes, we are. Farmers are known to pack these cages with as many chickens as possible so as to increase productivity – and what cost? It’s our health that we have to worry about since the output is anything but healthy…
Most of these chickens outlive their usefulness in a year as they continue to lay eggs – at least, one egg a day. As they do this, and continue to brood 12 eggs at a time, the farmer then moves away one eggs, and which isn’t noticed.
In order to compensate for the loss, the hen tends to lay another one, and sooner or later, can’t produce any more eggs.
And since the farmer is particular about getting a good price, they check the ‘stolen’ eggs for blemishes or other problems, and then proceed to package and send them to the supermarket. Sooner or late, you’re enjoying an omlette, and which is where the journey of egg meets an unsavory end.
How tragic but more so for those hens who are reared inhumanely and which is it’s time to get back to basics – the organic way – if only to the benefit of our health.
Are there any good or bad instances of chicken development that you have come across? Feel free to add them in the comments section below.
Also, here is an article on raw eggs health benefits, provided of course, they’re reared the organic way.
