The videos shown on KOAM and Neosho Forums of Moark chickens being placed in dumpsters while they are obviously still alive, has once again raised all kinds of questions about the humane treatment of chickens.
The Longmont Daily Times in Call, Colo., featured an article today about a Neosho native, Cyd Szymanski, who is the CEO of Denver-based Nest Fresh Eggs, which come from chickens that are not kept in cages.
Moark is Nest Fresh Eggs' biggest competitor and is run by members of Ms. Szymanski's family, according to the article, which points out that Moark also features a cage-free brand, Egg-Land's Best. The difference, obviously, is cost. The caged chickens' eggs go for 99 cents a dozen, the article said, while the cage-free eggs from both companies cost about $3.49 a dozen.
The family Christmas dinners are interesting, Ms. Szymanski said.
