Ive been buying these eggs for a while now,Snapdragon, are you saying that they ARE NOT free range??

In my view that is a great price if they are genuine free range eggs. I buy mine from the local farm shop for about £1.10 per half dozen. They to are supposed to be free range. We call battery or barn eggs sad eggs in our house. Having said that when budgets are tight families will always vote with their wallets. And I don't hold it against them for doing so. If you earn good money though you really should be giving them a miss.

i agree - and am assuming that what they are writing on the packaging is true

while this is a good price for a 'major' they are 99p for 6 all the time in my local Aldi, not dure if it's nationwide or not...?

Free Range, means that the enclosure that they are housed has openings where a chuck if it wanted could go outside. As it is nice and warm and there is food and water - few venture out to the great outdoors.

Just doing an online shop and found these at Sainsbury's, 15 eggs for £2, so a little cheaper

Tesco cheaper they have 1 pack of 6 eggs for 85p so 24 eggs would cost you £3.40.

guides for free range say its ok to stick 12 birds per one square metre (loads of room) lol

The guidelines for space when the birds are indoors allow for 27.5kg per square metre – which is the equivalent to about 12 adult birds. In terms of outdoor space, the industry guidelines don’t specify exact measurements. They only say that the birds must have access to an outdoor area for at least half of their 56 day lives

Good deal cos eggs in Asda r normally luch more than this I find.

The entire coding/naming system on eggs is awfully misleading, we bought some eggs from asda and where the 0123 code should be theres simply a question mark.I mean that should be illegal as it doesn't comply with their own coding system. YET all the calorie information was clear as day on the top because how fat your going to get from hens in the same cage for 20 years seems to be more important, awful!!

I do post occasionally ...

I had just happened to see the Sainsbury deal five minutes earlier, so added my comments and then saw another egg thread too

Morrisons also sell 15 free range eggs at £2 although i think they odd sizes.

This photo is a 'free range' farm (of course), and the air is fresh (there is no legal or literal definition), as there is a fan at each end.
The only requirement is that they are not in cages and have a hatch to outside.
What is outside doesn't matter much. If there was no hatch they would be called barn eggs.

All I'm saying is don't think you are getting cheap eggs from happy hens that scratch around in woodland and fields. You are simply getting cheaply produced eggs from a big farm like the one in the photo.

Only way i'd believe they were truly free range is if i saw the hen laying it in my back garden lol

i just buy the cheapest where i am at time as long as they have the lion stamp their british so great.

The moral of the story is don't pay more for free range eggs in a supermarket because it is a load of twaddle. Save your money and buy 10 battary eggs for 99p in Aldi. In fact the battery hens probably have a better life than these fake free range ones.

totally agree , we live ( unfortunately ) close to a 12000 chicken ' free range ' unit , the chickens very rarely go out and if some do its only into an electric fenced muddy paddock.
they still attempt pecking orders and consequently get into fights and end up injured.
the feed contains antibiotics etc. and the whole lot are slaughtered after only 13 months.

get eggs from a local smallholding if you can

i bought 12 of these eggs for £2 last week so its not really a good deal...

got these, great deal but be aware of short shelf life. luckily i bake lots of cakes!

Expensive. Far cheaper from our local farmer - and true free range
