If you are looking for great tasting eggs from pasture raised free roaming chickens you have found the right hens here!
The only time they are confined is at night to keep them safe from predators. An hour or so before dark they start heading back to the coops for the night.
There is occasional bickering if one hen has the wrong "seat" for the night. It's amazing how they pick almost the very same perch location to sleep.
Research has found that free range grazed hens produce a healthier egg high in beneficial Omega 3 fatty acids and low in harmful Omega 6 fatty acids but we eat them for their great rich taste, firm whites and bright orange/yellow yolks.
It baffles us to read on a commercially produced egg carton "cage free" along with the words "vegetarian fed", who trains those chickens what to eat when they are "cage free"?
Truly free ranging chickens WILL eat bugs!
