        As though it's meaningfully better for the "free range" chickens packed in at similar density, just with a door open.

        If you're buying eggs you almost may as well get caged, the difference is mostly marketing.

          When free range cannot meet demand they substitute with caged ….and a lot of them.
          Easy money, buy caged bulk $1 doz and sell with 300% mark up.

    So there are basically 3 layers of eggs,
    1 caged where the bird lives its whole life in a cage where it doesn't have enough room to move
    2 barn, where they are basically kept in a large shed with birds having a little room to move around but they are pretty crowded.
    3 free range where they are allowed to wonder around outside, and actually get some sunlight.
    When they are free range they must specify how many hens per hectare. And sure some of them are pretty crowded, not much better than barn eggs.

    I can't believe people with a concious would support caged eggs. I am in no way a greenie, I'm a hunter, but even i have respect for the animals I hunt and animals i use. We went as far as getting (and taming) chickens, but they kept getting taken by foxes or neighbourhood cats. >:|

    Personally, given the lives of farmed animals are at stake, I'm happy to pay a much as it takes for them to have a decent life. (We pay about 7.50 per dozen to get i think it was about 750 birds per hectare rings a bell).

    Nothing deserves to live its whole life in a cage.

    This is just plain wrong, I have to neg this deal as nothing is worth an animal with feelings living its life like this, where there are very easy alternatives.

    Caged eggs aren't even that good due to the chickens not getting vitamins and minerals they'd get from foraging outside

      You sound just like those abusive husbands who love their wives, or those colonisers who bring indigenous peoples better lives, or Donald Trump.

      •  

        Just like the American Indians that respected the animals they hunted?

        •  

          I don't know if they respected them, but I expect it was most commonly a matter of survival in their case at that time. Unlike your case, where you have a multitude of eating options that don't require intentional killing - it's purely a matter of pleasure, and completely unnecessary.

            @afoveht: Do you realise how much chemicals are pumped into your farmed animals, do you realise how small a cage animals are kept in? Do you realise how much suffering the animal is put though not only living that way, but transferred to the slaughter house.

            I'm glad in Australia we have many massive ranches for farmed animals, but that's not the case for many, some farmed pigs for example live in a cage they can't even stand in, are inseminated never to see or raise their babies.

            If you bag out hunters trying to feed their family with ethically sourced meat AND you buy meat from a super market AND have no clue where it comes from or what is been through, you are not the humane one, I believe far far worse supporting a potentially cruel system. I wish I didn't as much as much as I do) im not saying those who buy their meat from supermarkets are bad, just those who bag out others for wanting better.
            I hate that my supermarket meat isn't labelled as to where it comes from.
            It should be like eggs, so you can decide for yourself and do your own research.

            I just wish I could get much more of my meat free range, that's had a good life, not chemically/ hormone filled crap we are so used to eating. - that i know exactly where it's come from.

            Unfortunately I don't get that much from hunting. Hunting is about putting food healthy ethically harvested food on the table for your family.

            If you want to protest somthing go protest your local supermarket.

              @wisc:

              Yes I do. Most people do, but they don't care - they are more concerned with their fleeting pleasures than the very lives of other sentient beings. Only those who have made the decision to not partake of this - vegans - come close to caring. You don't care - you kill for no good reason.

              "Free range" eggs still involve massive exploitation and death of birds. Better than caged? Sure, the same way it's better to kick someone in the stomach rather than the head. But both are unnecessary. Free range is like an indulgence, paying more for some sort of absolution, but there's no good way of doing a terrible thing.

                @afoveht: Agreed.

                Fancy a hunter killing a poor defensive animal and then saying they care about the animal.

                I agree with the domestic violence analogy above.

          Turning a blind eye to this product results in poor sales and changes the behaviours of suppliers. Economics 101.

          Having a sook on a bargain website changes nothing.

    •  

      These are 42 gram "medium" sized eggs, they're normally only sold to the wholesale / restaurant market. Much like a lot of things at spudshed it's overstock that is getting cleared.
