You might aso be wondering why you never see pasture-fed chicken eggs at supermarkets, that's because you cannot industrially farm pasture-fed chickens in large quantities.
As well as a bigger space, pasture-fed chickens also need natural grasses and a foraging diet:
While they are a little more expensive to look after and feed, pasture-fed eggs provide you with more nutritional benefits than free-range and caged eggs:
At Paleo Robbie we sell two types of eggs, they are:
Pasture-fed (105b) - you can find pasture-fed duck and chicken eggs at our grocery.
Our chickens and ducks roam around free each day and their diet includes foliage, ants, insects and worms.
They are pasture-fed and go beyond all the requirements shown in the images above.
Our chicken sanctuary contains a huge termite hill which gives chickens access to food 24/7.
Free-range (99b) - our free-range chickens are sourced from Koi Korat and they also wonder around in open fields all day, while they do pick a few worms and eat larvae their diet isn't as rich as their pasture-fed brothers.
Due to their upbringing, we don't force our chickens to lay extra eggs. We have a limited quantity per week and you may see our eggs listed as out of stock as from time-to-time.
Not only our eggs better and tastier for you, our chickens also get to be happy and healthy chickens.
