Non-organic large eggs for 8p each. Iceland 10 Large Fresh Eggs. The Lion mark is your guarantee that these are quality eggs laid by British hens vaccinated against salmonella. It's actually £1 for 10 large eggs and £1.60 for 20.

There's no way saving a few pence on these can justify the conditions the birds are kept in and the junk they pump into them to increase the amount of eggs they lay! FROZEN

Having had proper free range eggs I can't see how anyone could go back to these; insipid yellowish yokes instead of rich bright orange!

Anyway, that's not the point of this site, so voted hot on behalf of the people who will sit with their kids kayden and Chantelle in front of Jeremy Kyle munching on a bacon sandwich with these in before settling down to a can if energy drink and a spliff.....

I'd rather not buy eggs if I can't afford free range.

hardly a few pence a 6 pack of free range can cost £1.60+

whether people buy them or not the fact is they will continue to do whatever they like, so whats the point in not buying them?

until someone can actually prove these eggs are bad for you people will continue to buy and so will I, can also mix it with a kingsmill loaf for £1.60

OP - you said non-organic but perhaps you should have said not free range? I'm assuming they are not, at this price, so a lot of people won't buy them. The price is fine but the way the eggs are produced is not so not voted either way.

Free range, I suppose. Even barn eggs would be a better option, and often cheaper than free range.

I'm sticking with the deal itself rather than treading on any moral grounds here. We're fortunate to live in a land where people can choose whatever eggs they want to eat :)

We eat Chicken all the time and don't care how they are kept so I don't see what the problem is
At the end of the day the majority of people go for price rather than the conditions the animal is kept in

Either we all change our eating habits or this goes on simple

still my point that it's not pence, to get 18 of those free range it's £3 you get 20 of these for £1.60, I understand the moral part of it but thats about it for me anyway

I keep chickens and personally couldn't buy anything but free range for ethical reasons Yes caged bird's eggs are cheaper but it's a fact that free range eggs have a richer yolk than caged birds eggs.

Yes you save on the price but you get an inferior product.

Hens are the most persecuted animal in history.

Try not buying food from a supermarket, you'll love the taste.

You could then argue that it's fine to buy clothes that might be a much cheaper "deal", despite only being cheaper because they are made using child labour in some Asian sweatshop.

Yes we have freedom to choose what we buy, but that doesn't make it a good choice. It sounds very much like how American gun nuts carry guns because "it's their right" to do so.

Personally, "poverty" is never an excuse to justify exploiting others.

In that case we never should have banned fox hunting, cock fighting or have any protected species. It depends Wheather you believe animals should have any rights or not, then lets talk Bout personal choice.

whether people buy them or not they will continue? Pretty sure if no one bought unethically sourced eggs then they wouldnt produce them- thats kinda how capitalism works.

Typical journalism, you have to read underneath the headline to get the full picture.

“It would be nice to think the current free-range system gave the birds the best welfare, but the problem is that the management of free-range systems in the UK is so variable,”

“The enriched cage is a modest improvement on the barren battery cage. But only in free-range (or organic) farms can hens fully perform all their important natural behaviours, like stretching and flapping their wings, perching up high, foraging, scratching, dust bathing and laying their eggs in a comfortable nest.”

A European Union ban on battery farming came into force at the start of last year.

Under the new rules, egg producers were forced to stop using the controversial “barren battery cages” in which birds were kept in cramped conditions in small cage.


Those are the key points, thankfully battery cages have been banned from "choice", however still why should any living animal be forced to not be able to perform its natural behaviours?

Happier? Only if the free range environment is not managed properly.

another point to think about is the vast quantities of male chicks that are gassed at birth by the caged hen industry, as male chicks dont lay eggs so are of no use to them
i think ill stick to my free range ones thanks

If one of my hens go broody (stop laying and only wants to sit on eggs) I put her in a 'broody breaker' which is basically a raised cage which let's the air flow underneath her chest and cool it so she looses the urge to hatch eggs. When the broody habit's been broken they are desperate to get out of the cage. They pace and are visibly distressed and clearly want out. So like cicobluff I call BS on the above research. It's about the animals quality of life and I will refuse to believe s hen is ever happier in a stacked cage regardless of Wheather it's enriched of not.

Animal welfare aside, I get organic&free range eggs from friend's farm and difference in taste is massive. I had to use some emergency cheap ones from local co-op few times and they were simply bad, never again.
