This is my first video from my Grandmas farm in Kentucky. I ask whether the Non-Aggression Principle (or even simply the concept of theft) applies when taking eggs from chickens. I realize that the chickens will lay eggs regardless and if they are not fertilized there is no baby chick, but I am not sure the chickens want us to take them. Perhaps if the eggs are found abandoned (as chickens will do if nothing hatches) is it fair game? Also, most eggs you buy at the store or from restaurants are raised in horrible conditions and are not free in any sense of the word. Please watch and share your thoughts. Thanks

    Is it theft to take eggs from chickens? yes it is cause why would anybody steal the eggs from the chickens?

    I have pondered that also and, as I eat eggs, I buy unfertilized eggs from a neighbor who has chickens that run around free on the land.
    Where I live chickens run around free. They visit my land and eat what’s available including all the lychee and lots of the jaboticaba fruits. Maybe it’s a fair trade. 🙂
