Found 31st Jul 2008Made hot 31st Jul 2008
Just came back from Tesco Extra, picked up 15 free range lion eggs for £2!

It says they mixed size but they are medium to large, so great, and free range. What more can you ask for. Not sure if these are online or instore only! Not bad considering usually £1.50 for 6

Edit, these are in clear boxes incase your looking!

To much is made of the word free range what picture it conjures up.

But what's wrong with free-range eggs? To get laying hens you must have
fertile eggs and half of the eggs will hatch into male chicks. These are
killed at once (by gassing, crushing, suffocation, decompression, or
drowning), or raised as "table birds" (usually in broiler houses) and
slaughtered as soon as they reach an economic weight. So, for every
free-range hen scratching around the garden or farm (who, if she were able to
bargain, might pay rent with her daily infertile egg), a corresponding male
from her batch is enduring life in a broiler house or has already been
subjected to slaughter or thrown away to die. Every year in Britain alone,
more than 35 million day-old male chicks are killed. They are mainly used for
fertilizer or dumped in landfill sites.
The hens are slaughtered as soon as their production drops (usually after
two years; their natural life span is 5-7 years). Also, be aware that many
sites classified as free-range aren't really free-range; they are just
massive barns with access to the outside. Since the food and light are
inside, the hens rarely venture outside.

eggs!

Will have to poach some of these from Tescos.
Could be a mad scramble for them
Eggcellent price.

It's worth pointing out that Asda are doing 18 free range eggs for the same price. And they have them in stock as well...

i used to buy 30 free range class A range eggs for £1.99 in next door indian shop. do i need to go to tesco?:whistling:

Reading this sort of ting really upsets me. And I am with you that its wrong.

But I also know that one person stopping eating eggs and chicken isnt going to make such a difference.

All I can comment is that the chickens are bread for food purposes, so they are stock as such. I dont agree with what they do, I think its horrifying, if I thought for one minute me stopping eating chicken and eggs would make a difference I would beleive me.

More things must be done to stop these little ones being treated harshly, and I rthink it all begins with the big boys like Tesco and Asda etc. Driving the costs down is causing this.

Dont know what to say.

Wish I lived near you cos I would be your best customer! :thumbsup:

I've got my own 6 birds, who give me between 4 and 6 gorgeous eggs everyday!! Cost very little to set up, they have a 20 foot by 20 foot run, but freely roam around the garden for worms.

The kids love them and it's great sitting watching them while sitting in the garden with a long drink!!:thumbsup:

FRESH EGGS, CAN'T BEAT THEM!! :-D

This does seem a reasonable deal,

but we get genuine free range eggs from a farm by us, tray of 30 for £2

Sorry! I know not every one is as lucky as me, I buy my Free range eggs from a local farmer at £1.40 a dozen and the picture I posted is very much how they live. Its just supermarket free range eggs are not really as free range as they like to make out.
