CALIFORNIA EGG WATCH


Historically eggs are important
religious and cultural symbols in
many traditions and are still important
in celebration -- both real eggs to be
eaten, decorated and displayed as well as decorative eggs.
They have been a reasonably priced source of protein for
both serving in many ways and as an ingredient in other dishes.

In 2008, California voters passed
Proposition 8.  
Senate Com on Food & Agriculture, 2009
background.  

Will eggs cost more after Prop 8 took effect in January 2015?

Walgreen's circular, week of February 22, 2015 features one dozen Grade A eggs @ $1.29.  

How about keeping chickens and having your own eggs?  There is a lot to learn.  
APHIS provides
