Whenever you are buying eggs, you will have several options to choose from to include cage-free eggs, organic free range, eggs from caged hens and more.

The standards that these organic farms must follow include that the birds and chickens are organically raised no later than two days after they hatch. The chicken must be fed certified organic feed for their whole lives. The organic feed fed to the chickens cannot contain any antibiotics or animal by-products, or genetically engineered grains.
