how can a single egg be 53 gallons of water. they can’t possibly drink that in a day

oh because of the grain

One egg? So much water, how?

These chickens are laying an egg daily, why does one need so much water for that.

they eat a lot of grain/seed probably.

maybe it takes a lot to grow them up, and they have to be fed regularly too

This German Wikipedia article says that one special hybrid chicken lays roughly 330 eggs in its 1,5 year lifetime. So we are somehow looking at 17.000 gallons of water, or roughly 32 gallons per day… How?

I would like to see the source of this.

The source is a screenshot of text how could you question the great all knowing non-selectable god?

Perhaps including the water needed for growing what they eat? Just a guess.

the farming ones are meant to grow really fast

So what’s the solution here? Should everyone around the globe just go vegan?

That or at least stop seeing it as normal to eat meat with every meal would help a ton too

that would be great

Including, presumably, areas where human-consumable plants are a pain to grow and in a narrow window, i.e. Russia (especially northeast), Iceland, desert areas?

not if it really threatens their food security but that’s prob a small population density the local environment can prob handle a few chickens and fish or whatever
