Difference between Caged, Cage Free and Free Range Eggs
Caged eggs come from hens who live their entire lives confined in small wire cages, indoors. Typically a hen has only a small space, that’s smaller than a piece of printer paper.
Cage Free Eggs
Cage-free hens have no outdoor access and spend their whole lives inside the shed. They are free from cage confinement in order to roam inside the shed but mostly hens have only the space that’s smaller than 2 pieces of standard letter paper side by side.
Free Range Eggs
Farm made hens roam outdoors everyday on open pasture. They have lot of free space, lot of fresh air to breathe and areas for playing, lot of greens to feed on and safe place to rest. They may travel in and out of the shed at free will.
