Why Free Range Chickens?
According to U.S. Department of Agriculture regulations," free range chickens must have access to the outdoors". In contrast commercial growers raise "conventional" poultry confined indoors in cages. It is important to note that pasture raised hens eat a diet of bugs and grass in addition to their grain diet. On the flip side of the coin, "conventional" commercially raised hens eat a diet of strictly grain. Also interesting to note is the fact that USDA regulations do not require free range hens to actually have access to pasture. This is something consumers should know when buying eggs at the supermarket but unfortunately most probably do not. The studies have been done comparing pasture raised hens to conventional poultry, To make sure you get all the added health benefits of free range eggs, make sure they come from PASTURE raised flocks!
