If you’ve ever tried free range eggs, you’ve likely noticed how much fresher, healthier, and tastier they are than eggs from caged birds. Not only do they taste different, but they look different too.
From a health perspective, free-range eggs are higher in Vitamin A & E as well as Omega-3 Fatty Acids.
In the video below, which was part of a recent BackyardChickens.com video contest, YouTuber DugFinn uses her chicken flock to show viewers the many benefits of free-ranging your chickens.
Maine’s legislature is currently entertaining a bill that will improve the lives of the millions of caged hens in our state. I’m sure it’s not going to pass. I was embarrassed for one man who yelled about those of us not vaccinating our birds and allowing them to eat earthworms (OH! the horrors), and passing disease on to caged birds. Thanks for sharing your flock with us!
We will look up the legislation! Thanks for the tip.
