This otter and its mates were

carrying on a treat just before being fed.

The egg ended all play.

Otters did not mind if it was free range,

close range or a long range egg.

I used to think free range should be better then I read

that to be sold as a free range egg chickens only

needs to have about one-and-a-half square metres

of space to call its own.

 

From about the end of April 2018 new rules

came into being in Australia.

Egg producers could have up to 10,000 hens per hectare.

Or to put it another way, ONE hen every square metre.

It appears Sunny Queen chickens ‘when outdoors’,

are stocked at 1500 birds per hectare

packed in like sardines when inside, perhaps.

 However, Manning Valley chickens are

stocked at 2500 birds per hectare.

  1. I have a concern. They sell all these different types of eggs BUT which ones do I get when I go tot the grocery store and purchase a B B Q chicken. They all taste the same to me. 🙂
