I try not to eat eggs much... Even if the chickens are free range has anyone ever thought where all the FEMALE chickens come from, and where all the males go?
I'll tell you, at 2 days of age they are sexed... Males go down one conveyor belt, females down another... Boys are gased.
So even if you buy free range, it's still an industry of death.

We used to have our own chickens but two were killed by someones dogs, a bunch went missing (just vanished) and then my gorgeous Araucana rooster died from a snake bite. That left us with just one hen and she was so upset that I found a wonderful home for her a few streets away with a bunch of new friends and a lovely older couple.
Since then we buy eggs from local farmers, and we both want more chickens but I am just still so upset about what happened to ours two years ago I am not sure I could go through that again. Our girls and Mr Jack were the most beautiful pets in the world.
If we got some more again I would buy Australorps as my Australorp was the most beautiful natured hen of the lot.

Yes I only buy freerange, but can't wait to have my own chooks when we move to a bigger place with more land.

I try to, a wollies near us actually does cheaper and larger eggs in a larger packet that are free range. But our main wollies doesn't have that option and when we are on a super tight budget we can't afford them.
We had out own chickens in hopes of having our own eggs but they were killed before they started laying, so we are waiting for spring to get new hatchlings

I have my own chickens, so yes.
Huge backyard to roam in, a special spot to dust bathe in, trees to roost in, a covered shed to lay in and daily warm mashes. Plus nothing enters the backyard for fear of the dogs. Nothing tastes better than happy chicken's eggs!

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.
