    We had 5 chooks,now have 4 thanks to the dog next door..
    We end up with enough eggs that we actually go a few weeks without eating them as we get sick of them!
    I end up giving them away to friends!! They love it!

    free range. Only started doing it when they changed the packaging which made me feel bad for caged chooks. they are only four dollars a dozen so not much more than caged ones and they last us two or three weeks. I have eaten caged eggs all my life until that point and don't see any difference in the taste between the two types.

    I buy Clarendon farm organic eggs, not only cause I want happy chickens but I wouldn't feed
    My son caged eggs from badly treated chickens as their egg quality would reflect their health , the extra $10 or whatever dollars a week is worth it

    Yep. We ONLY buy free range. We buy them off a friend with chooks or from the supermarket. If we buy them from the SM, they are only ever the one brand that are genuinely free range.

    Please tell me that brand zk, I would love to know. I've found the reports strange as they say there is only one genuine FR brand but don't tell us what it is

    I know that I could never get them at the supermarkets in QLD I wnet to, though so not sure how readily available they are in other states as they are NSW based.

    Our chicken are laying about 5 eggs a day, I've got more eggs than I know what to do with lol!

    If I bought it would be free range, my mindset probably changed about it all once we actually got our own chickens though.
