How many people actually know the difference between free-range eggs and cage-free eggs. Well the difference lies in the way the chickens that lay the eggs are reared.
If you don’t know the difference, thankfully you are not alone. Most of us know the difference through the price of the eggs.
Caged: Chickens are forced into small cages. They cannot move and are treated as machines.
Cage-free: The chickens are uncaged and able to freely roam a barn or other facility, but they generally don’t have access to the outdoors.
Free-range: Indicates the hens are cage-free and have some access to the outdoors. These chickens are normally healthier and happier not under any stress.
Just because chickens aren’t forced into cages doesn’t mean they are living a good life. But truly free-range chickens? Just see for yourself.
