That would be free range weeping.

Oh Boy!!! lolol....that is good at 2am!

Free range eggs just HAVE to be better than battery hen eggs even if they only get 5 minutes AWOL per day. And lets all make sure hens get much more than 5 minutes free time by not buying
regular eggs. Read the carton label well and decide.

I was very lucky and brought up with our own chook eggs and I remember well how they were fed cos' I fed them!! And collecting those gorgeous orbs of sunshine each day was such a pleasure, even to a 5 year old.
Our eggs then had yolks so bright that you sneered at the boiled egg and toast soldiers at your Townie friends houses. The word ' anaemia' now comes to mind thinking of those bought eggs.

I live on organic/totally free range eggs. In moderation as cholesterol has gone AWOL, never mind some itinerant chookies!!
Try anything organic you can lay your hands on. The flavours are as they used to be. ie: as they should be.

Yep, that was me. Free range, in the US, is just a marketing ploy, not a sign that the chickens are treated any better. I personally WON'T buy them, because I don't see any sense in paying more money to chicken factories for the same eggs/chicken.

My girls are in a pen--gardening with loose chickens around is a waste of time. They do get lots of weeds and garden discards, and all the kitchen waste, so their eggs are flavorful.
