We label our eggs as ‘pastured’ so that you know they are really free range. For eggs to be labelled free range, the Model Code of Practice says there should be a maximum of 1500 hens per hectare. But many commonly available “free range” brands do not adhere to this, with some brands keeping as many as 10,000 hens per hectare. Feather & PECK farms stock less than 25 hens per hectare. There’s plenty of room for our happy hens to spend most of their day outside to graze freely.
A feather & PECK egg is not just a ‘feel good’ egg. Studies have shown that pastured eggs are higher in Vitamins A & E and Omega 3s than ‘confined hens’ (in cages or large barns).*
Our customers say that the egg shell quality is noticeably harder, the egg and yolk separate well and the eggs have a great consistency. They’re happy to eat ethical eggs that come from happy hens.
