I agree with mani.  I did also see a CBS show on chicken farming in america.

good source of protein. but I think if carefully planned protein from legumes
and soy are more "fat free" compared to eggs.  

philosophically, there should be no reason to discard eggs.  But in general
it seems that is less satva promoting according to traditional schools. (
ahara niyamam etc.)

at least my comments.
