Meaning taking into account the claims about the relative suffering of eggs and chicken?

Meaning taking into account the claims about the relative suffering of egg-laying chickens and meat chickens.

You should have brought that up at the very beginning, rather than claiming that a 20% difference was cause for action.

What I originally said was:

If anything, you should be replacing eggs with meat.

I was saying that replacing meat with eggs would not work, and doing the reverse would be slightly helpful. Apparently, replacing meat with eggs would be slightly helpful, but it still won't do much.

My goal was to keep Metus from wasting effort on doing something pointless. I most likely succeeded. My goal of the continued conversation was to correct any misconceptions I had, to which I also seem to have succeeded.
