Eggs for Breakfast?
The Reality of What Goes Into Them
- Ammonia Gas -

(Ammonia Gas)  Because of the massive amounts of manure, gas masks hang on the wall for workers to use inside the sheds.  The gas is ammonia, which comes from the decomposition of urine, the white part of bird feces (droppings).  Ammonia gas is very irritating to the eyes, lungs, and delicate mucus membranes.  If the concentration of ammonia gas is so irritating to the workers that they are forced to wear gas masks, think of the pain and suffering that the hens must be experiencing.  The hens have no protection or relief at any time, day or night.   Every egg a person eats contributes to this suffering.  Remember these things the next time you think about having eggs for breakfast.

The indifference of the vast majority of our fellow human beings to the pain and suffering that our race has inflicted upon laying hens and other animals has led us to present this series as a form of apology to all suffering beings throughout this world.  It is also offered as a prayer to God for forgiveness and as a request that the Lord would instill in each of us the sensitivity to feel the pain and suffering that we inflict on others, to such an extent, that we would cease our atrocities and become the children of God for whom the whole of creation anxiously awaits.  Our thanks to Compassion Over Killing, Farm Sanctuary, and United Poultry Concerns, Inc. for providing photos and comments.
