Vegetarians can eat eggs because it does not involve killing the animal. Those that do not eat eggs or dairy products are called vegans all the best urban

An egg is not an unborn chicken because it has never been fertilised. It is the equivalent of a women's period, not of the unborn It is animal protein, as are dairy products but, in the English language, vegetarian is used to denote specifically a person tat eats plant matter, eggs and dairy product all the best urban

In my opinion, products that produced from animals are considered non veg. Veg foods from the word itself means it came from vegetables. Since egg came from chicken and chicken is not a vegetable, so it is not a veg food. A true Vegan never eat or take something that animal produce including milk and egg.

Yes, i do agree with your opinion rhannealmoite. Since egg comes from an animal then it's a non-vegetable food.

In my opinion, I think that the egg is a non veg food because it comes from the hens and therefore I regard it as something relates to the life. The veg shall be including the vegetables, fruits and plants. I love China

A hen can lay eggs without a rooster and then the egg would be vegetarian since no life is there. If the rooster fertilizes the hen and then she lays the egg, there is an embryo there and you are killing a potential life if you eat the egg.

In UK eggs are dairy product not meat and this is a English language forum and English is our language, so eggs are poultry not meat all the best urban

How does a chicken comes? Of course, it is from egg of a hen only. Then, how one can say that egg is a vegetarian food. Killing a hen within a womb is called eating egg, so purely I can say that egg is a non-veg food.

according to me there is nothing that we eat is vegetarian what do you mean by non-vegetarian- killing other living thing and feeding in them from grains to fruits we eat everything is living so no one can say i m pure vegetarian (this is my point of view)

But plants r not unlike other living beings that weeps or defend or has senses like seeing ,touch ,taste but I agree plants do breath take food in that way they r living but in India we consider plants as veg and all comes after killing some living being is non veg ...... Egg , no one is killed ,still its considered as non veg in our country .......... Hare Krishna Ganesh

Dear friend, I feel even those plants are living things, they do have life, they need food, shelter, water, air. But only thing I feel is that they are much less harmful that other living things. Non vegetarian especially those meat food, for me egg is non vegetarian it is unborn hen, that had came out from an hen. Will a non born pig child in womb cooked and ate is absolutely not vegetarian.
