Buying them can be CONFUSING 🤷🏻♀️ see brief explanation below to help you make a more informed decision! 👇🏻
🥚Cage Free: chickens are not in cages but live in a crowded hen house (a single square foot of space to move around)
🥚Free Range: same as cage free but have “access” to outdoors with a small door. Many never see the outdoors.
🥚Vegetarian: fed corn, soybean, and grains
🥚Organic: not treated with hormones and receive organic feed
🥚Pasture-Raised: roam freely on pasture with sun and fresh air, forage on bugs, grass, and greens
🥚Omega-3: fed higher levels of flaxseed of omega3 supplements
🥚Brown: from a different type of hen (no difference in nutrients)
Pasture-raised is BY FAR the best choice! You can also look for the @ial seal. 🥇And one more thing - EAT THE YOLK! 🙌🏻
