I don't believe there is anything that is officially called a "vegetarian" egg. Most vegetarians don't eat meat because of the animal cruelty issue. I am one of those persons. I will eat eggs because they are naturally produced by chickens - they are not forced to lay eggs. However, I will only eat eggs from free-range chickens (not battery chickens) who have been fed an organic, natural diet with no antibiotics or additives included.
I think these eggs are the eggs that you are referring to. Eggs that have been harvested from humanely-treated chickens.
Vegetarian eggs are eggs that come from hens who have been fed a vegetarian diet.
