I buy these regularly, good sized eggs, unlike other supermarkets value packs where the eggs are all tiny.

Do Free Range Taste Any Different?

I think you can taste a difference between free range eggs and caged. The yolk is so much more tastier too. The caged eggs are a great alternative for families on budgets and who really can't taste the difference.

But I agree any day of the week i would rather pick up a box of free range eggs. I normally buy asda's free range box of 18, for about £2.78 or something like that. Honestly for those who don't know the difference, you should really try with 2 frying pans, cooking and trying one of each. I always find the yolks tastier and a lot more fresher in eggs.

I think all eggs should be free-range.

If you're gonna do that properly you need somebody else to cook the eggs and not tell you which is which - blind trial.

Better still, get a 3rd person to hand the eggs to the person who's gonna cook 'em telling them one is egg A and the other is egg B - a double blind trial. Just in case they subliminally cook one more carefully than the other or smile more when they hand it to you.

Of course that wouldn't be statistically valid unless we all did it and collated our data here. Who's up for it?

PS. Aren't eggs 12 for £1 in Iceland (8.33p per egg) - I think it's because their currency collapsed.

Buy FREE RANGE!!

For the sake of a few pence and the health of ALOT of chickens.

Do free range eggs taste any better when used as an ingredient in cakes etc ???

Would be interested to hear an expert's opinion.

:-D Tee hee

We're only talking about EGGS ! Jeez - free range/caged - does it really matter??

NO

Do we care how chickens are treated? No, just sell me the eggs and meat.
These bearded liberals will be wanting to give the chicken the vote next!

Uh oh, the do-gooders are out in force...

Wonder who'll win in a battle between the free rangers and vegetarians? ;-)

Vegetarians usually are free-rangers ;-)

I always used to buy the cheapest eggs in the supermarket, usually from caged birds without caring where or how the chickens were kept. That was until I got 4 ex battery hens of my own. When I first got them they were virtually bald and tiny and could barely stand up. Obviously I dont buy any eggs now as they keep me and my neighbours fully stocked with fresh eggs. If you have the space I would recommend getting some as it is great to see them adapt to life outside a cage and grow their feathers back and fresh free range eggs every day for free must be a deal.

Almost all the vegetarians I know don't eat eggs though they don't all fall into the vegan description...

Anyway, the joke is ruined now...

What's the right number of hens to a cockerel and how much space would I need? Also, on average, how many eggs do you get over say, a month?

Hmm..

I don't really mind what I eat, but I don't particulary agree with their living conditions..

Barn eggs - aren't as good as they first sound.. tens of thousands in tiny little sheds pecking eachother.

Free Range - ok, as long as there's not a cockeral around..

To be honest, I don't care. An egg is an egg and they taste the same when shop bought. It's a load of nonsense that free range taste any better.

Voted hot as it's a decent price.

I am not sure that you would want more than 1 cockerel as they fight I think. I didn't get a cockerel as they cause upset with neighbours (early morning alarm call) I have 4 hens and get 3 eggs most days although as it is cold at the moment I sometimes only get 1 or 2 a day in the summer we get 4 a day. They are ex battery hens I got them from the little hen rescue centre in Norfolk. I am not sure about space you will need a hen house or small shed to close them up in at night and then an area for them to scratch around in some people give them free range of the garden but they do scratch up all your grass and if you are quite rural you need to beware of foxes.

Free Range how very novel.

Gotta be Organic for me.
