I saw eggs advertised in the grocery store the other day; $1 for a dozen! Makes it kind of hard to compete against them if you have to pay nearly $1 just for the box.
free range chickens are like a whole different species. I have not eaten a store egg in many years. Every once in a while I try one just so I remember just how great mine are
Tractor Supply sells them. I don't know the price, sorry.
I read somewhere that a lot of the "free range" eggs at the grocery stores were a sham. Supposedly to be labeled "free range" about all they have to do is open a window for about one second. Not really but you get the jest of what I'm trying to say. The chickens sure aren't let loose and brought back to the chicken factories.
IMHO You are confusing two terms "cage free" and "free range" with "Open range" chickens BEE HAPPY Jim 134 :)
