Why are your hens vegetarian fed?

Vegetarian eggs were developed for the lacto-ova vegetarian. These vegetarians eat eggs and dairy products, but require that the hens producing these eggs are not fed animal by-products. Chickens that produce vegetarian eggs are fed all grain diets in contrast to chickens producing eggs whose diets include animal proteins. Other nutrients may also be added to the feed which are lacking in the pure vegetarian diet.
