We get true free range eggs from a friend who lives out of town. Her chooks live the life of luxury! I won't buy supermarket ones anymore, they taste funny

I usually buy barn laid. To me there is little difference between barn laid and free range in terms of animal ethics. Free range does not necessarily mean they are outside running around, and even if they were I would rather have the hens inside away from the weather and predators stressing them out than running outside in heat and cold with foxes prowling the vicinity.
Also, I have never been able to taste the difference between barn laid, free range, caged eggs. The hens are usually fed the same feeds no matter what system they are in. They only time I can taste it is when I get eggs from friends where the chooks are eating anything and everything.

I don't buy eggs.
Anyone looking to get their own hens, please take a look at adopting an ex battery hen. They'll still lay eggs for you and you get to give them a chance at a normal life that they never would have known otherwise.

To answer the OP, yes I always buy free range. I buy the RSPCA eggs because I assume they wouldn't put their name to free range unless the chickens were in fact in good free range conditions.

I buy free-range organic. Apparently there is a difference but I forget what. THey are the most expensive ones but I just avoid looking at the price and don't notice in the end. I don't eat eggs though and really the girls have scrambled ones a couple of times a week so we don't need a lot.

I buy homebrand occasionally. We don't have a lot of eggs and I prefer to buy free range or barn laid on special, but yeah I do buy cage eggs occasionally. Why? Because it's what I can afford. Though mostly I choose to go without rather than buy cage eggs, but sometimes I do buy them and try not to think about it
