If you aren’t able to raise your own chickens like Paula, then get the eggs you want from your local market. What’s the difference between a Conventional egg and Cage Free egg? We consulted the U. S. Department of Agriculture to clarify egg carton labels.
Conventional: Hens live in stacked cages, usually four to eight chickens to a cage with at least 67 square inches of floor space per chicken.
Cage Free: Hens live on the floor of a barn rather than the outdoors or in a cage.
Free Range: Hens live outdoors or have limited access to the outdoors.
Organic: Hens are fed vegetables grown without any antibiotics, growth hormones or commercial fertilizers.
Omega 3: Hens are fed a diet containing ground flaxseed, which produces eggs containing slightly more polyunsaturated fatty acids.Read More From Baking Basics.
