When it comes to buying eggs, it's difficult these days to know the best eggs too buy. If you can afford them, organic eggs are a good option to try. This is because to qualify as organic eggs; the eggs must come from chickens that are fed feed that is only organic. That means that the chickens are fed a diet that is free of animal by-products, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or other chemical additives. This means that no genetically modified foods can be used. Additionally, organic eggs must also come from chickens that are given antibiotics only if they get an infection. While commercial chickens, on the other hand, are given antibiotics on a regular basis. No hormones or other drugs can be used in the organic egg production. Molting, when chickens shed their older feathers to make room for the new ones, this process is sometimes induced in commercial egg and chicken production by withholding things such as food, water or by other means. Molting is something that should happen naturally with chickens, and it extends the productive life of laying chickens, but molting cannot be induced in chickens that are laying organic eggs. Only natural molting is allowed to occur with organic chickens. Organic eggs must come from chickens that live in environments that are cage-free and have access to the outdoors, even if the chicken's outdoor area is just a small pen or enclosed yard area. Chicken pens are used to protect the chickens and their eggs from predators such as hawks, coyotes, foxes, racoons, and other animals.
When thinking of the best eggs too buy. Organic eggs versus free-range eggs versus vegetarian eggs. Organic eggs are not cheap. Organic eggs can cost more than $5/dozen, which is roughly double the cost of commercial eggs. This is largely because of the extra expenses that are involved in meeting the organic certification requirements. Finally, you want to be aware that free-range eggs aren't necessarily the same as organic eggs. This is because the USDA requires that free-range eggs come only from chickens that have some access to a small, fenced area of cement which the chickens may or may not use. Additionally, chickens that are free-range might eat feed that is non-organic and is sometimes given antibiotics or other drugs. Similarly, the sellers of vegetarian eggs, natural eggs or antibiotic-free eggs aren't subject to the same sort of scrutiny as organic eggs. Since nobody is checking, it is up to the manufacturer to set their own standards for what constitutes a vegetarian egg. So if you can afford to purchase organic eggs, it's a good idea to do so, as they are one of the most regulated types of eggs you can buy.
