My parents used to get them from my cousins in Upshur Co. when I was a kid.  After I saw a developing chick inside one it disgusted me.  I'm staying away from any eggs where a rooster is allowed to mingle with the hens.  

I definitely agree there, I dont eat fertilized eggs.... but sad to hear you dont eggs, morning routine here

I have eight hens and no roosters ... I let them free range most of the day but lock them up at night in a predator proof compound and hen motel ... they are pampered with fans, heat in the winter, night lights and a water misting system during the heat of the summer ... they keep us in large brown eggs ...

All it takes is a little animal husbandry to bring us all together.

I watched this several months ago, because my cousin wondered why people kept "yard birds" guinea's or peacocks in their aviary's.  Guinea's server many purposes, and they are a relief from pests such as ticks, fleas, and other pests.  Peacocks are great home alarms.  Growing up in East Texas we should all know that.  Or at least I thought, and she's 10 years older than me.

Butcher told me today their major meat packer suppliers have closed due to no workers stricken by CV-19. Says produce will soon follow for same reason.  We know who fills these jobs. Who is going to do the work?

Produce is hurting mainly because of the schools, casinos and restaurants being shut down.

I have some friends that are in the wholesale part of it.

I read that produce orders for those industries is being turned back into the ground.  Store owner and butcher told me they suspect grocery stores will be produce short next due to lack of workers.  Meanwhile.....https://www.breitbart.com/news/essential-but-exposed-us-farm-laborers-lack-virus-protection/

4/1 Trump said.....

We want the farmers to be able to get people that have been working those farms for years, or we’re not going to have farms. So they’re going to come in. And they’re going to be given a certain pass and we’re going to check them very, very closely — especially over the next month, because remember after a month or so once this passes, we’re not going to have to be, hopefully, worried too much about the virus. [Emphasis added]

But we want them to come in. We’re not closing the border so that we can’t get any of those people to come in. They’ve been there for years and years, and I’ve given a commitment that they’re going to continue to come or we’re not going to have any farmers. [Emphasis added]

and yesterday......

New White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is working with Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue to see how to reduce wage rates for foreign guest workers on American farms, in order to help U.S. farmers struggling during the coronavirus, according to U.S. officials and sources familiar with the plans.
