10 Medium Eggs, British Lion Quality, 8.5p each.
In comparison to non free range eggs elsewhere (Tesco, Asda) they are £2.50 for 12 which is about 20p an egg, so cheaper than 2for1 when buying from Lidl

No offence to the original poster, but sometimes the moral argument is too strong.

Plus they contain less protein than free range eggs so you're getting less for your money.

if you care so much for the animal you would go vegetarian.

In reality free range etc is seen as a status symbol for the simple minded consumers to feel superior to others

These are normaly around the £1-£1.10 mark at Lidl week in week out, and perfectly fine eggs too!

If the battery farmers have reduced there prices due to a higher proportion of Free Range eggs being sold then that will hurt there bottom line, and as they struggle to stay affloat in recessionary times, possibly the chickens welfare.

So, buying free range can be counter-productive, and make the mainstream alternative more attractive to more and more people. Especially where as a result their prices are only bound to increase. :{

poor justification but I'm a student. additionally the profit margins on caged hens are alot more marginal than free ranged, the companies are just making more from them.
Blame the companies, it costs them about 8p more to produce a box of 12 eggs, yet they are charging 100%+ more, the hens may live a happier life by being allowed out during the day but that doesn't address the way they are raised, killed and fed (no differently that of a caged hen), thats what should be focused on

I am all for free range eggs and a nicer life for the chickens but for those people out there that can't for whatever reason buy free ranged eggs just putting this deal out there thats all

These are as good as supermarket free range eggs. When I go to a local fishing lake I use. I drive past a battery chicken farm, which has now gone to a free range chicken farm and the only difference I can see is that a piece of land outside the chicken sheds have been fenced off and the chickens now have access to the outside but sometimes there are so many in the small area that they can hardly move about.
Where as the farm where I buy my eggs have a whole acre field for about a hundred chickens to run around in, and this is what I call free range.

What is this about? If it is about cheaper eggs, buy them at Iceland @ £1 per dozen, every day.
Lidl is not especially cheap, although it is cheaper than aldi.

Lidl is not especially cheap? its works out as 0.85 a egg, your iceland one works out at 0.83 an egg, hardly much of a difference :) and for those that don't want 12, 10 may be better

There's nothing wrong with your math. You're right. The Iceland price is lower. And the Iceland price is not a temporary special offer you have to rush to grab, like the lidl price you highlighted, it's the normal price every day in Iceland. I know which makes sense to to me.:3

It's such a shame that such cruelty is allowed in the first place, imagine what would happen if we crammed humans in a small space, there would be an outcry. It just wouldnt be acceptable. Yet, because chickens can't protest it's seen as acceptable. So I would get free range eggs as saving a few pence isnt really worth it, it's cruel and will never be justified. It always amazes me, how people will say, I can't afford it, yet they buy all sorts of rubbish to feed their families, chocolate, crisps etc. Think that the reason therefore is that they just don't care.

ROTFLMAO at the free range comments. You lot have been suckered by the bull to pay twice as much for eggs from chickens treated almost as badly as the battery ones if not worse as they all get crammed into their alloted space and live a similar life of hell if not worse!!!

Some nice free range eggs for the toffs?

Aye, some people live in cloud cuckoo land because it suits their conscience. Free range in my view is a money making scam. I am sure they think the millions of eggs we all eat come from 1 chicken in a ten acre field somewhere in kent.

Ahhh, so that's how people justify it then. If you pretend to yourself that it will do no good, then you can save money. It isn't just about your conscience, it is about putting a value on a life other than your own. By the way, more farms are becoming free range, as there is becoming more of a demand for free range eggs.

jennyfer4.

You misintepret my meaning. All these holier than thou posts from people on eggs yet has anyone actually checked out where their free range eggs come from? I bet not. If you want free range eggs then go to a farm that sells them and not the supermarket or does the consience not stretch to putting in any effort?

My local farm does fantastic eggs and you don't find them in the local supermarket pretending to be from a chicken running around happy popping the odd egg out every now and again for us to enjoy.

Anyways jenny enjoy your free range happy eggs from happy hens which apparently lay happy eggs

Happy eggs from super happy chicken running around the erm, erm, erm

I have got them from the local farm shop, but there is obviously concerns over salmonella poisoning if you buy from there. Supermarkets obviously doesnt have this risk. Just watched the sky news and was shocked, as I don't buy free range for their taste, I buy them as I expect the animals involved to be treated with respect. I will never buy happy eggs again. What a shame that people can't even trust the RSPCA stamp now.
#30
Jenny, the problem is we are routinely lied to and the only way is to research what you buy or buy locally. Witness all the halhal meat we are getting routinely fed but not told about. It disgusts me on not just animal welfare levels but also religeous grounds as halhal meat is blessed in the name of alah. The sad truth is there are too many of us and to produce food in the volume we need means non intensive farming is an impossible dream although I do my best with my shopping.

And then we move onto exploitation of the third world to satisfy our greed........

I agree with that, but people shouldn't be encouraged to buy eggs from hens that they know are definately caged hens. Tesco do a range of eggs that are free range from a local farm, might have to check them out.
#32
Sorry yes I should have explained that better. By locally I mean the farm a walking distance away from where I live and I can go round and watch the chickens so I know they are in tip top shape.

I'm all for saving money,but if you are so short that you can't afford about 3p extra per egg for free range,perhapsyou should think about keeping a few chickens.A few quid investment and a bit of grain will save you loads for several years, plus you'll get to like them.They may be chickens they deserve to be treated reasonably. saves the shoe leather and petrol going to the supermarket too.

Yep, it's a shameful justification. I see a lot of morons posting on this board but you're supposed to be trying to better yourself through education and intelligence. Instead you're crying about saving not enough money to even get a half of beer. You are a disingenuous ****.

And what exactly is the problem with Halal meat? Differences between it and other meat, the neck is cut to drain the blood from the animal, and before its killed something is said on the lines of 'sorry, but we need the food'. By eating it and not being Islamic it doesn't mean you've sinned in any other religion.

Bigotted idiot...
