Free range. I just can't bring myself to buy caged eggs.

Free range and organic. I pay $10 for a dozen eggs as they are the best I can find locally. I can't wait until I have the yard space to have my own chickens!

Free range, because I hate battery farming.
As far as organic foods being healthier though, take a look at this article ...
The study, published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, is the first "systematic review of the available published literature," according to the authors from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
The authors found no statistical difference in nutritional content in 10 of the 13 nutrient categories studied, and chalked up any differences that were noted to use of fertilizer and ripeness at harvest.

I don't go out of my way to buy free range, I buy cage or barn laid when I am at the shops and buy free range local farmers eggs from the butchers if I have to get meat.. We normally have chooks but at the moment we don't I hate chickens truthfully, like their eggs and their meat and I agree they don't deserve to be mistreated but really who is to say they are?! I mean sure their living conditions are different but they are still laying so obviously a little bit happy, apparently only happy chooks lay eggs?!

We have 4 chooks & on average they lay one each per day. As dh works away, DD & I don't eat many but I give a dozen a week to my parents & any leftover to workmates.
Prior to having them, I only buy free range.
Like pp's i find our eggs (& so does everyone else) are much nicer, creamier & definitely bigger and with beautiful yellow yokes.
There is actually so much research that you can put into your chooks- to get the nicest, strongest, yellow yolked, creamy eggs.
The type of chook, how old they are, what plants you plant in their coops ( ie: planting marigolds for them to eat gives them lovely bright yellow yolks)
What you feed them etc
