    I just went into the butchers quickly to grab some eggs as they're usually really nice from there and from the local farm - HOWEVER - Ive just looked at them and they arent the usual nice ones and are from caged hens :( I always make a point of buying free range or organic and now Im not sure I want to eat them.

    Does anyone else buy normal caged hen egg pegs? Im probably being really hormonal and pathetic :rotfl: :cry: :rotfl: :cry: :rotfl: :cry: :rotfl: :cry:

    I always get free range or at the very least the barn housed ones.
    I think it's so cruel :(

    I wouldn't worry now you've bought them, just look out next time :lol:

    We always get free range, but don't worry too much it was an honest mistake :)

    most of the time I buy free range, or those omega 3 ones, but now and again I'll grab caged ones if I'm a bit short of cash.
    I try not to do it often though - maybe once every 4 months or so at the most.

    I know how you feel about the chickens, but they've been bought now so no point wasting the eggs. At least make them worthwhile - or else those chickens will have suffered in vain.

    They taste the same, honest.
