    No, 'free range' is mostly bull**** rip off.

    I know people who work in the big 'free range' chicken farms

    We have backyard chooks but they only lay 9 months of the year - cold climate, little sun - so we buy local free range the other few months. I doubt the conditions are much chop but it's all we have available.
    Actually, I feed them beef or fish as chicken makes their poop stink... Either way, it's a horrible industry

    My mum has laying hens so we get a dozen here and there when they have too many but if i buy them from the shops, honestly I just buy whatever is cheapest.....the "free range" and caged eggs from the supermarket all look the same when they are cracked so i dont believe they are truely free range. So i'm not wasting my money on something that looks the same as a cheaper product.
    When you see a proper, free range egg cracked you see the difference, the yolk is so bright, and you really taste the difference aswell

    absolutely refuse to buy anything chicken that is not free range. i have my own chooks but there are times they don't lay, so buy free range from my local co-op or fruit and veg shop.
    i have googled various egg distributors and have certain ones i will buy only if desperate who are really free range.

    i can't stand the thought of people perpetuating that caged anything is okay just to save a few $$

    I buy local free range eggs and we use a lot of eggs. My 2 eldest have scrambled eggs most mornings.

    I buy caged eggs, or what ever are cheapest. If we are somewhere near a farmers market or someone privately selling them I will buy them instead. Normally they are cheaper than supermarket caged eggs.

    So price for me, and the guarantee when I do buy a farm fresh egg it actually is what I am paying for!

    Free range all the way. If they're too expensive (rarely) I will buy cage free.
