The most important ingredient in the meringue recipe is the egg whites. When it comes to choosing the eggs that you are going to use in this easy pie recipe, you will be faced with several options of eggs to choose from to include cage-free eggs, eggs from caged hens, organic free range, and more. When it comes to the chicken being certified organic, the farms in which the chickens are raised must follow a set of strict guidelines and be inspected annually by a third-party certification body to ensure that those standards are met. The standards that these farms must follow include that the birds be raised organically 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. The chickens that are being raised organically also cannot be grown using any chemical fertilizers or persistent pesticides. Chickens must also have access to outdoors. Organic chicken is more expensive than conventionally raised chickens. Free range eggs come from the method of farming by where the chickens for at least some part of their day, can roam freely outdoors, instead of being confined in a caged in an enclosure for the entire day. Free range is used to describe either eggs or dairy farming practices. Cage free eggs are a better choice ethically than using eggs from caged hens. By choosing cage-free eggs, you can help get chickens out of the battery cages that many still live in. By purchasing free run, and certified organic eggs you can help promote a better industry for the animals. In battery cages, a hen’s behavior is severely restricted, by not allowing them to express their natural behavior, for things like just scratching at the ground, perching, laying their eggs in a secluded nest box, flapping their wings and having dust baths.
