So just wanted to share this with y'all. Since I have been doing the chicken thing for a while now and this was really surprising to me. Free range hens that forage for part of their food lay WAY more nutritious eggs than hens from commercial farms. Mother earth news, Skaggs nutrition laboratory, Utah State University & Food Products Laboratory in Portland tested eggs from free range birds and found that they contain...
☆4-6 times as much vitamin D
☆Three times as much vitamin E
☆7 times as much beta-carotene ☆A form of vitamin A
☆Twice as much omega 3 fatty acid ☆Half of the cholesterol ☆A quarter of the saturated fat
As commercially raised eggs.
