Personally I don't eat any meat products, but once in awhile I do eat the occasional dairy depending on how I feel. At any rate, this morning I was making banana pecan lowfat waffles and cracking an egg into the batter and it looked developed. I can barely type this it makes me feel like I'm going to gag and it makes me feel really, really sad. Luckily I have ground flaxseed on hand so I did finish the recipe, but I feel scarred.

No, that would have been preferable honestly.



It had a lot of embryo material, that white stuff. And then it had a brown part that looked like a seriously developing embryo. The thing with the bloody eggs or a rotten egg is that they stink, this one didn't. It was so gross.

Well that sure is strange. I saw a show on how they do the egg thing. While horrible conditions and all, there's only egg-laying chickens around (i.e. no males) and all eggs are pre-screened with lights/etc to check for bad ones. Eggs are immediately dropped from the hen to a conveyor (i.e. no chance for fertilization, even if a rooster slipped past) -- egg layed to on conveyor happens within seconds.



I'd bet it's more of a bacteria thing growing and using the egg to grow -- which would be just as disgusting. Shame it happened though.

Maybe it will taint your view of eggs, making it easier to cut them out completely?

Pretty much, I don't think I'll ever be able to stomach another egg.

One might take that experience as the chickens trying to tell you something.

As far as I've read, occasionally roosters will get in the cages with the hens (the chick "sorting" process is far from perfect), resulting in fertilized eggs once in awhile.



Have you ever read "Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs"? I forget the author's name, but the text is available online if you do a search.

I had a double yolked egg the other day that traumatized me a bit. I just found out that the chicks wouldn't have made it anyway but it did put a fast forward on my desire to go full vegan.

Double yolked is gross too. I once found a ball of blood in an egg. I only use eggs when I'm making cookies or cake for other people. I have a bunch of eggs in the fridge that need to be used up. I bought my Mom a dozen and the next day she went out and bought more. The fridge door had been cracked all night and she was scared to death that she'd die if she ate them. The fridge never got warm.

I can't eat eggs by themselves. *gag* The texture is gross and I know where they come from. Just thinking about it is enough to turn someone vegan. I only eat eggs in things like Worthington Wham. I wish they'd cut them out though. Mmmmm...wham sandwich with Vegenaise.

Join us in the vegan sub forum and I bet you in no time you will stop eating eggs altogether. But I can't say more here, because it's not allowed on the vegetarian sub forum.
