How many of you actively avoid second hand soy?

When transitioning to a traditional diet (WAPF) I started to worry about the soy I was feeding my chickens. I gave it up myself..why would I feed it to them? I struggle to feed them properly now that I don't buy commercial feed. I feed them meat, eggs and even raw dairy kefir. Along with grains and seeds. They produce very expensive wonderful eggs. I have a friend who is sensitive to soy and she says that only my eggs don't give her a belly ache. Even the best local pastured chickens (meat) that I buy, are supplemented with organic(all be it) soy feed! I'm wondering how many of you make sure your pastured eggs/meat are second hand soy free?

Although more seriously you could substitute coconut aminos for soy sauce with some extra salt or fish sauce.

Not all commercially raised eggs are fed soy, though most certainly are.

:Waves both arms: ME, I avoid secondary soy in all forms whenever possible!

My mom died at 52 of an estrogen-linked cancer-- soy mimic estrogen, so I'm done with soy totally and completely. I found pastured eggs from a small farmer for $3/dozen, I just bought a whole cow ("cowpooled" with some friends) for grassfed beef and I buy pastured chicken directly from a farm.

I try not to hang out it in vegan taverns, smoke tamari sauce, and avoid vegan smokers.

My chickens get a corn and soy free feed that can be found all around the Pacific NW (http://www.scratchandpeck.com/). If you're not in that area, there seem to be other resources online. It DOES exist! My chickens were getting so fat on their previous feed and have slimmed down nicely since we switched them over.

I have just started to avoid soy fed meats and eggs. I found a local guy that feeds his wheat (as well as free ranging on plants). I don't know if there is a better alternative, but the yolks have an interesting color.

I never buy soy-fed eggs. Yes, they are often much more expensive, but so are many of the foods that are safer to eat. Soy is found in the yolks of eggs of chickens that are fed it. I can do without that.

I do when I can (which is most of the time).

Second-hand soy is, ironically, slightly better than first-hand - and infitintely superior to fourth-hand. Not even gonna talk about sixth-hand.
