It is revealed that:
- Consumers who pay more for free-range eggs have been warned that more than one-third are officially stale.
- Well over half the hens described as free-range are housed in huge sheds, may never go outside and their eggs may come off conveyor belts.
Anyway, the silver lining in this story for me is that I very luckily have an "egg factory" next door and the eggs are definitely free range.
I know for sure. I sometimes feed those chooks with my food scraps too.
