Happy chickens - Happy eggs!!

e

Have you ever noticed the colour difference between egg-yoke from free range chickens and chickens which lives in conditions where you have 40 chickens per quaremetre?

A happy free range chicken will produce an egg-yoke with a rich sunny orange colour whilst a chicken living in the aforementioned appalling conditions produces egg-yokes with a 'painful' pale yellow colour. It is like the life is literally sucked out of it and if you've ever noticed the difference in the colour you might also know that there's a world of difference in the taste of the egg. We simply cannot treat animals like they are machines with the single purpose to 'produce' for human profit. So yes, free range eggs are more expensive but who and what do we really want to subscribe to??
