protein content eggs

Hi guys,

just a quick question, i recall at the farmers market i got my eggs from last year, the farmer mentioned to me during the last month that amongst the organic vegetables, and the picking the chickens get to do in the grass for bugs, he also gives them some soy to "increase protein content" . I didnt make anything of it then as his eggs were so delicious and fresh and i was loving them.

But now im wondering, is this true at all with regards to protein content? I guess he was using organic Soy, but does that even exist? Sounds odd to me

was hoping a few of you could shed some light

thank you

It's a good question. I can't find any definitive answers. Seems like the soy feed is passed on to us by the eggs because people with soy allergies react to eggs, but to what extent is unclear. I would avoid soy-fed eggs if possible, but it's hard to find anything not labeled "fed an all vegetarian diet" (certain to contain soy).
