Free Range Eggs – grown in South Africa. These chickens are really free range – could almost be called wild chickens. With loads of space to wander around and a new pasture every 6 weeks – these chicken have got to be the happiest chickens in the world. No medication, no hormones, grain fed and allowed the run of the farm these layers produce fantastic tasting free range eggs – deep orange yolks and wow – not many small eggs from these hens. Sold at Bryanston Organic Market – Happy Eggs.
Free range chickens will eat just about anything in their path. Even grass if there is no other food. The number of eggs will drop if they are not eating grain though – supplement grain with vegetable garden off cuts and kitchen scraps – and you have a very happy hen.
Hens eat lizards, bugs, spiders – and will even take on snakes and field mice. Hens are not vegetarians – and this is where cage eggs fall short – no natural food and a miserable existence.
Whilst not organic eggs in the sense of being certified, these chickens are pretty close to it. Same space that organic hens get and plenty of fresh home grown spinach and lettuce. Tomatoes are a treat – especially when the small wild tomatoes start coming into season – these hukus literally climb over each other to get them.
