So far, we've had a steady supply of farm-fresh, chemical-free eggs since we maintained our own free-range chickens. They are so organic to the farm that we hardly do any work in keeping them. There is so much space for them to roam and feed themselves, and just after some weeks, they have gotten used to coming home to us even if they periodically cross-over to the neighbors.
Free-range chickens look, feel, and taste far more natural than commercially-
raised varieties that are stuffed with processed foods and medication (which we will ingest, in turn). They are cooped in cages all their short lives where their movement is virtually impeded and there is no opportunity for them to move and flex themselves.
And commercially-raised chicken is almost always the white leghorn type! Free-range ones, condescendingly labeled "native," actually look better and more appropriate to our local surroundings.
