are they free range?
Just so it's a fair comparison :thumbsup:

I prefer the battery ones.

You can tell if tyey are not fresh, because they lay flat when broken onto a pan. Not mounded as fresh ones do.

Very good price. Usually have to pay about £1.36 just for 6 (for free range). As poster said "cheeeep" ;-)
Thanks for posting (rep left) :thumbsup:

I bought some of these. Not sure how free range the hens are because the yolks are very pale.

Will still be fed on antibiotics and growth hormones, but will be more free than battery.
Try organic, they're free range and not fed on cr8p.
downside is they're a hell of a lot more expensive - you could always try a local farm, the'yre usually about £1.50 for a dozen.

"free range eggs" as a title doesn't really tell people much about the thread ]peterholland. I have updated and added an image. Please see the links in my signature for help on posting deals.

they are supposed to be paler - the darker yellow ones have had coloring added to them through the feed ..

Good deal and just wish more and more people would buy free range.Absolutely disgusting what happens with battery hens.

These have been the same price since this thread - hotukdeals.com/ite…da/

Credit goes to the original poster.:oops:

I get my large organic eggs from a local farm for £1.30 a dozen. :thumbsup:
Still a good deal though as it's the best supermarket price around

If they are free range its a good price but if not then they sell 10 large eggs for £1 at Iceland..

I don't agree. I keep hens and they are fed on organic wheat and they free range round the garden. Their eggs have beautiful dark yolks. Before they were allowed to free range, the yolks were much paler.

their not bad . A little on the small size but you can't grumble for two quid and their free range !

Always get these. people need to stop the battery cra.p, pure torture for the hens like. Cant beat a nice 6 egg omlette with these

We saw these last week and were very pleased as i have been forking out a lot on free range eggs from Sainsburys in the last month, Kungfu is absolutely right (rep left!) people need to stop buying the battery ****, come on people show some decency, dont but eggs by hens who have been tortured!! please:thumbsup:

Good post. Difference in price for free range is now very little. Taste and welfare lots better.
11p an egg very good

For those who find free range , organic , too expensive, here is a suggestion: buy 50% free range/organic and 50% battery eggs, when you make omelet , cake, use 50:50 (half half) and gradually wean yourself off battery eggs. Once the market for good welfare and tasty eggs get bigger , farmers will produce even more tasty eggs. Tasty eggs , ones whose chickens eat lots of insects and worms are extremely tasty. A tasty egg even at 20p is better value than a bag of crisps (for those who can eat eggs).

As for most eggs which are on the market today which are marked with free range, barn, so unless there is some written evidence or proof about the conditions of the chicken I find that for cheap eggs, and don't be fooled by the packaging:-

BARN eggs, the word barn refers to the farmer's BARN adjacent to the battery where the hens live
FREE RANGE eggs, the words free range refers to the free roaming farmer and the supermarket bulk buyer who are FREE RANGE in RANGE ROVERS
COTTAGE eggs, cottage refers to the COTTAGE adjacent to the battery where the hens live

There should be a statement of living space per hen for FREE RANGE.

sorry cant hit hot on this.... come on...its EGGS!

trust you magicbeans x

i pay £2 for free range from the local farm. Their free range and they tasty so much better then battery hens . [COLOR="Red"]Free the Chickens !!![/COLOR]

nice one. the gf kept saying these eggs are real nice. until we checked we were eating free range, so were posh now coz we used to buy the offers with 20 battery stuffed eggs in a 2cm x 2cm box for £1.09.

sorry about the deal, i forgot to say its incredible. off there today and to get cravendale milk 2 for £2 as not only does it takes better, a little bit more expensive then other supermarkets but its incredible how longgg these milks last. astonishing. like when the normal ones expiry within 3 weeks, were seeing this cravendale last month and a half to two months.

wonderful.

The colour of the yolk has no significance at all (except psychological). Hens cannot produce pigment for their eggs so the colour of the yolk depends on what they eat. Birds fed on a lot of greens will have the darkest yellow yolks while those fed on wheat will have the palest yolks.

The “Lion” stamp on British eggs shows it has been produced according to a set of industry standards (salmonella vaccination etc.). They also have a ‘best-before’ date (21 days after laying) and a number – 0 for organic, 1 for free range, 2 for barn eggs and 3 for cage eggs followed by a country code (e.g. UK).

Very large start at 73g and small are 53g and under (A large Aussie eggs start at 52g).

These ASDA eggs are sold by weight (944g per carton) so the average weight of the 18 is 52.44g so these eggs will be a mixture of medium (53-63g) and small eggs. Mine had a BB4 date of 27th May which meant they were laid on the 6th May.

Sorry but I like to be eggs-act

13 birds per Sqm as opposed to 16 (afair). Not very 'free', in actual fact, complete and utter marketing BS (anyone who doesn't believe can easily check on the DEFRA website). Still if it makes people feel better to believe their doing good rather than just giving more profit to the supermarket chains, who am I to judge.

13 birds per sq.m is the housing density.
Free range also requires that the birds have "continuous daytime access to open runs which are mainly covered with vegetation and with a maximum stocking density of 2,500 birds per hectare" i.e. 1 bird per 4 sq.m.

Source of your information? I find this all quite fascinating tbh, don't really see why people get stressed about it though. 2012 and all eggs will be so called 'free range'.

At ASDA in Morley last night and didn't see this. The best they had was 15 eggs (caged hens)for £1.50.

Eggsactly - yes, thats my point. If their yolks are pale, what do they free range on and where? My idea of free range is hens running around and pecking on grass and green-stuffs. These pale yolked eggs indicate a different kind of free-range.
