Buy the eggs that suit you and your families needs and budget ....fresh , farm,free range eggs( actual real free range) are the best , but not everyone has those options

So do your best, I know I'd rather a hen that can roam outside even if it is through a small door at the end of a shed then eggs straight from battery cages ...... It's not ideal...but it's better

I think you are misinformed about organic certification. We are organically certified farmers (not of chickens), we work VERY hard to farm organically and provide our stock with organic feed. We are audited regularly with on farm visits. We have great pride in making sure that we provide the best quality food possible. For anyone to say the regulations are a joke is highly offensive to me and the many other organic farmers I know who take the regulations very seriously.

I try not to buy them and go without. If l really need to buy some then l go the rspca ones, thinking that they would be the best, but after reading Winglets post about debeaking l'm not so sure now...

We're buying the McLean's Run eggs at the moment. They boast 1500 hens per hectare.. which is as low a stocking density as I've seen. There was also EcoEggs, who have Chook Cam to show off the fact that their hens do get outside.. http://www.ecoeggs.com.au/chookcam
There's also Green Eggs, who are local to us and we know they get outside too.

I've spent a little too much time researching eggs for someone who has 10 "layers". :bolt:


@Purplehat et al - From what I could decipher off the packs, I had been buying McLeans Run if the use by was long, closely followed by McGrath Foundation and I had also contemplated the ones with George Colombaris on the pack. I hadn't seen EcoEggs, but will look for them next time - I LOVE their ChookCam (awesome sight to watch hundreds of ISAs dust bathing all at once LOL). Thanks!

To everyone else, I glad most of you are as confused as I have been trying to make sense of the marketing fluff on the carton. :) Hopefully once all my girls stop being broody / start laying I won't have to worry so much.

Do you have a list of shops in your region? You may look for them on the Internet by refining your search with area code https://dialcodes.co.uk/areacodes/01792. Then you may check local forums for reviews. My personal opinion is that it is absolutely safe to order from specialized online stores. They value their reputation and customers and diligently deal with all the orders. Do not hesitate to order online.


This is interesting! Thank you for sharing

Again "GGaming" has leapt into a thread that is almost nine years old, given overseas links and neglected to mention the irrelevancy to Australia (aside from also giving out unsolicited financial advice to all in another thread). Harmless, but not helpful.

I always buy RSPCA endorsed free range eggs.
