So where do you get your underprices free range eggs from?:D

Free range my backside (_;) Waste of money free range eggs from supermarkets. Buy the battery hen eggs for less money and ignore the lies about so called free range. Better still buy them from the local butchers or farm.

This is cheap for them, I agree they are normally much dearer on average
6 medium free range is 85p @ Aldi and Lidl as a regular everyday price, which is slightly more, but that's only less than a penny extra, and that's without the lottery of differing sizes & I don't have to buy so many in one go, also I can't say it's worth the off-chance they have these

What a strange quaint image of the country in about 1950 you must have, it's not one I have!

I have to go to a farm to collect them, they will work about about 4 quid for half a dozen even if they are 50p a box!
In case you didn't know, most of the population of this country live in enormous great cities of up to 17 million, where "free range" doesn't even apply to the ducks and swans in parks!

Butchers, it seems where you are, are also known for their particular tendency NOT to lie too, I take it? Round here, I rate Sainsbury's just about the same, and ones that sell free range eggs are a lot easier to find too!

There were lots of boxes available at my local store (Hayford Hill - Oxford) - and when checking all the eggs are a good size.
You could always do some swopping between boxes if you really wanted to max out the deal - lol! X)

Try reading the post and not misinterpreting it. Free range eggs in supermarkets are a con. The hens are stuffed in warehouses trampling on and cacking on each other. So rather than pretend you are doing the right thing forget it. Buy battery ones and save the money OR if you want proper free range then pay more and buy proper free range ones. And yes I live in a city and yes I can get proper ones if I wanted. But I don't because I know that to feed all our mouths in this country free range for everyone is a fools paradise.

This is a good price for them. I have to say I know there is some debate on how free-range they are but if nothing else surely its sending a message to the supermarkets?

IIRC battery hens actually have more space than "free range" legally speaking. Whatever, this is cheaper than Sainsbury's Basics eggs which were 99p for six the last time I looked.

Don't forget the ASDA price guarantee. 10% cheaper than other stores on prices or they give you the difference. You'll be able to get these for £1.80. (WOW, 20p!)

I'm not under any delusion that free range hens are living a life of luxury, but I find your implications that they are treated as badly as battery hens frankly ridiculous. What do you base this on?

Again, I have no delusions that the RSPCA etc. are perfect organisations but if you are correct, why have they not mentioned this before? Or is it a conspiracy that only you have discovered and the egg farmers/government/whoever are suppressing it?

Try your local market for the the best value eggs.
Our indoor market several vendors sell 6 large, free range eggs (from a local farm which I sometime drive past) for £1.00. That is their regular no B.S. price

Eggs from caged hens taste much better and are so much cheaper.

These free range ones roam around eating their own ****, taste terrible and cost a fortune. Caged hens are bred to lay eggs and may not have the best life in the world but hell, they were allowed to live for a reason so they should just make the most of it and keep on laying!:D

Callum9999. Do some research and you will be shocked about mass produced free range.

Try talking sense, instead of spouting libellous & untrue crap.

That will be interesting too, I don't HAVE a local market. I have never lived anywhere that HAS a local market, it's not France with markets in the local suburbs! I would have to pass any number of supermarkets to get to my nearest "local" market, and I suspect I am not much different to about 50 Million other people in the UK!

Oh of course, why did I not find 1 story about abuse and extrapolate that to an entire industry.

Thank you for really opening my eyes on this issue...

(And just for the record, there is nothing whatsoever in that article that suggests they suffered anywhere near as much as caged hens do. Unacceptable that they were branded high welfare yes, but clearly not as bad as caged hens - plus it just looks like a temporary lapse to me anyway).

You are far too trusting of those in pursuit of profit.

It's a comparable item. Doesn't matter wether it's Sainsburys, ASDA or Tesco. Do you think the hens that laid them are any different?
