So I am a sorta new comer to vegetarianism ( I tried it once before and it lasted a few months but I want back to meat eating). I have a couple questions. And first off I wanna say that my main reason for being vegetarian is for how cruel people treat the animals that feed meat eaters. I wouldn't have as much Of a problem if the animals lived a full life in a more natural habitat to them. So here are my questions: Since my family has chickens as egg providers/pets is it okay that I eat eggs from them? Our. chickens have a large property to run around and are 'free range' also we have never butchered any of them (and never will butcher) and have 11 hens and 1 rooster. So I think it's okay to eat their eggs because they live a full life and go whereever they please. My second quetion is can I eat the seafood that my family and I catch? We catch a variety of seafoods such as different shrimp, crabs, and halibut. Since the seafood we fish have lived a full life without being over crowded in small cages, is my reasoning for eating them okay. I also would like to remind you that I am vegetarian for animal cruelty reasons (although I do support the healthier life style and such). Thank you to anyone who can provide insight to my questions!
