free range, "no-kill" eggs in LA county

I don't currently eat eggs, but I'd like to start eating them occasionally.

Please read the following 3 points carefully before responding.... I'm looking for eggs in the Los Angeles area which are:

* From vegetarian, cage-free / free range hens
* From a source which doesn't kill any of their chickens for meat (or when they've exhausted their egg-producing capabilities)
* Ideally, from a source which doesn't kill male chicks

I'm sure I can find eggs which meet the first criterion at the farmers market and at Whole Foods, but I'm not sure about the rest, and it's always hard to verify the claims on boxes etc. I don't really need a large quantity of eggs (I'm guessing something like a half dozen every couple of weeks).

I live in Los Angeles (the city, on the East side), so preferably something not too far out.

I'm guessing the most likely source would be someone who has chickens as pets or keeps a few around, and had some extra eggs they could sell me occasionally.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
