Eggs are expensive these days.

I wish eggs cost even more, but that the extra money would be used to treat the chickens less abusively.

The 1960’s is when it all changed to factory farming.

Egg laying hens are some of the worst treated among farm animals, despite showing a neurological capacity to suffer, feel pain, form bonds, experience stress, etc.

8 square inches of space each on average, no sunlight, beaks and claws are clipped by people not trained in veterinary care (often hitting nerve endings), they often self-mutilate just from the psych stress of being in a small dark cage for so long, and they are fed antibiotics so that they can’t get infected and die, but instead continue to live with the painful open wounds.
