An egg law that is mandatory in the state of California has sparked a nationwide debate. Many other states, especially Missouri among them, have reacted to the unreasonable law inspired by animal rights activists. But the animal rights movement contends that the law is ultimately necessary for the protection of human beings. After all, battery hens produce diseased eggs.

The farmers all over the United States are up in arms against what they deem to be an unfair law. The egg law passed by the Californian state legislature stipulates the building of spacious coops for farm chickens. This is so that the eggs they lay for consumption will be disease-free.

The cramped conditions on some farms breed such ailments as salmonella in the resulting eggs. But the farmers in states other than California say that there is no end to this process. The next thing on the agenda may be compulsory handpicking of crops and solar-powered vehicles for transportation of produce.

In particular, Missouri’s farmers have fought back against what they perceive to be an unjust law. They reason is that the concomitant costs of complying with the law are simply too much. They cannot fulfill the criteria of the Californian legislature without going into monetary loss. However, the main issue here is the physical condition of human nutrition.

By making the living space for chickens fairly airy and hygienic, the eggs they lay may turn out to be more nutritious and natural. And of course they will be free of any harmful germs. So it does make sense in a way. But practicality and cost-benefit analysis counts too. And here both sides may have reached a deadlock.
