ABC Wednesday, F for Free- Range

Free Range Eggs for Sale


Free Range Chickens





ABC is created by Denise Nesbitt. It has been an enormous success. We arrived at the sixteenth round and the letter E. See more lovely and interesting words starting with F. Click on the logo in the sidebar and refer please to the ABC on Wednesday meme  and Mrs Nesbitt.

 

Wikipedia says:" Free-range eggs are eggs produced from birds that are permitted outdoors for at least part of the day. The term "free-range" may be used differently depending on the country and the relevant laws.


Eggs from indoor-only chickens might also be labelled Cage-free, Barn, Barn-roaming or Aviary. This is different from birds that are reared in systems labelled as Battery cages or Furnished cages."

You will understand that I 'll never buy eggs produced  from birds in battery cages. There are people who say that the "battery eggs" taste less good, as the chickens are confined in  small cages and are forced to produce eggs without a break.

I've never forgotten the sheer joy of eating Denise's wonderful free range eggs that she gave us when we visited her in Yorkshire. We were on the way home from a holiday in Northumberland, and she invited us for lunch,
When we were leaving we were presented with some of her chickies eggs, along with 2 delicious local beef pies.
Free range is best, I would never buy anything other!
Lovely words yet again Wil, I so enjoy reading your writing.
Best wishes,
Di.
ABCW team.

Norma Ruttan said...

Did the research tell why? I seldom eat eggs, but I definitely opt for the free-range ones.

Love your header, Wil, and I'm certainly all for free range eggs when I can get them.

Great choice for F!
We do not eat many eggs, but I do believe free-range is healthier.

My sister has some free range chickens...am always amused by her stories of where she finds eggs♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/fiery-sunset/

Good choice for the letter F. Free Range are all the rage for sure around here.

It would make sense that chickens living in less stress would produce better eggs. - Margy

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I won't buy eggs in the supermarket anymore unless I'm sure they are free-range eggs. Fortunately, there are a couple of small markets that sell them.

Interesting post. I admit, free range hens are not one of the 20 things that comes to mind with the letter F. :)

When I was a child everything was "Bio" I don't know who invented these "egg producing machines" ! Now we are returning to the past but have to pay more ! The so said bio stuff isn't really bio neither, only the bio prices are real bio ! I realized this when I ate vegetables, chicken, etc in Egypt, Morocco or Tunisia there everything tastes "bio" and is cheap !

Great information to have. Well worth paying extra (for those of us fortunate enough to be ble to do so).

I been trying to convince my hubby to raise our own chickens for the healthier benefits as well as at saving money, so far no such luck. :(

There is nothing like enjoying fresh scrambled eggs.
