Never noticed the price of these before in Lidl until today so bought some as they work out cheaper than anywhere I can think of. Checked on here and there is the same deal but that is a couple of months old so this is ok for a reminder.

We are not all fortunate enough to be able to keep chickens and anyway, what proof do you have that they are up to 48 days old. I have been using Lidls eggs for several years and to date have never had cause to complain.

It's a shame they don't still stock the XL eggs they had during the XL promotion.

Fourteen out of the sixteen eggs I've opened so far have been double yolkers :D

No it isn't, but you can be high and mighty about having your own. What price would you put on that?

Personally I rescued some battery hens that were no longer required by a farm from a charity, half we put in the freezer and the other 300 produce loads of eggs in their battery shed!

I once tried running a chicken farm, which started well. I thought to expand and get 100s cooped together, but they stopped producing eggs. Wondering what was happening, I turned one of the chickens upside down. I found a small label that read... batteries not included.

Get it! BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED!!!

Peter Kay, eat your heart out! :D

I dont think its right that chickens are kept in battery hen conditions, but I wouldn`t be able to afford eggs if I had to pay free range prices, I wish I could, but I`m unemployed. Just wanted to point out a good deal, and at least the little hens had a life. Better than not ever being born.

i know that hotukdeals is not the site to espouse views on animal cruelty. but i feel that this product is dreadful because of the suffering of the hens. free range eggs are not particularly expensive and apparently taste better too. so i am voting cold because while people clamour for cheap eggs, the condition of these hens will get worse in the future not to mention how poorly they are kept at present

This offer has been going for a while now. They seem to have knocked 15p off the price long term.

Iceland do 12 for £1 which is a better deal depending on how you look at it.

It's easy to say this is a great deal if you haven't seen the conditions for yourself. So I thought I'd show you two of the girls I rescued 6 months ago - just over a year old, machines bred to pump eggs out to get prices this low. They'd never seen sunlight, could barely walk and were covered in red mite - and scarily they came from a more reputable battery farm. Had they not been rescued the day afterwards they were destined to be cat food. Is that really better than not being born? I'll not argue that this is a good "deal" but it's a unethical, revolting product. If you can justify saving a few pence on a carton of eggs after seeing this then I genuinely feel sorry for you.http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b198/Aussieinbedford/61934_156708747688220_100000472862157_439224_2494714_n.jpghttp://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b198/Aussieinbedford/63008_156708807688214_100000472862157_439226_7284876_n.jpg

I know in comparison they're much more expensive, but the organic eggs that lidl do are the best value around for me. You can multibuy 2 packs of 6 for £2.50. Might seem a lot more than this deal (which I ain't knocking), but the organic eggs have very yellow yolks (always a good sign) and definitely taste better.

Are you kidding ....if I locked you up in a cardboard box all your life, would you want to live?? If you are on the dole, don't buy them till you can afford free range .....simple.

i dont understand why people still buy battery eggs when free range are literally only a few pence cheaper.. i'm a skint student and always manage to buy free range, no excuse. buying free range eggs wont break your bank balance. the conditions they live in are horrifc and disease infested. but some people will always be selfish enough to continue buying caged eggs.

Couldn't agree more - how lucky those hens are to have someone like you rescue them. I bet they look completely different now!

If I couldn't afford to buy free range - I'd go without.

If you've seen them on twitter someone's borrowed them from me, they're definitely my birds, its my eglu in my backyard and they were taken on my nikon. Both photos were taken on the day I got them, 500 other exbatts were rehomed on the same day and just about all of them looked as bad as this. I studied at an agricultural college and know the industry well enough but even I was shocked at the state they were in (and before anyone asks I'm not a free range farmer flogging his wares on here either).

I hope that by seeing photos like that just a few people will spend those extra few pence to drastically improve a chicken's lot. If you've never had them you wont know how inquisitive, intelligent and without being too anthropomorphic - friendly they can be. I'm not a tree hugger, vegetarian or zealot- you don't have to be to help out and if you've got a bit of space, want the best eggs you'll ever eat (practically every day) and don't mind a bit of chook poo here and there *free fertiliser!* GO AND RESCUE A FEW. Honestly you wont regret it!

But if you keep buying washed out, imitation eggs barely at cost whether or not you like it, understand it or accept it you're condoning animal cruelty. Pure and simple. Surely in 21st century Britain we're better than that.
Incidentally I couldn't tell you which of the two are in the photos below, they've changed beyond all recognition so quickly. I do know that she lays eggs almost every single day and certainly doesn't belong in a tin of cat food!

Couldn't agree more, we're supposed to be a civilised people, yet for the sake of a few pence an egg, far too many of us endorse horrifying cruelty.

And well done, we were going to get some rescued battery chickens too, but they apparently don't settle well with pre-existing chickens.
#29
Im sorry things are tight at the mo but i still buy free range and if things are really tight i'd go without. Free range are only a couple of pence more if everybody stopped buying battery eggs there would be no demand and free range would be even cheaper. Really sorry i never vote cold on a good deal but its cold for the chickens.

Al-Halal in Bradford doing 15 free range eggs for £1 - I went to the Great Horton Branch

We breed the chickens for exploitation. We steal their fetuses, eat their flesh and boil their bones.
