Eggs – fresh, local and ethical

By seepi 14 August 2005 10

Can anyone vouch for a good source of genuine freerange eggs in Canberra. I have heard that regulations are a bit lax, and cartons with freerange printed on them may not actually be as chicken friendly as you might hope.

On the other hand, I have also noticed that freerange eggs I buy tend to contain a few more gritty bits than the old fashioned battery kind.

I don’t buy that many eggs, so I can never remember which are the good ones.
Any recommendations?

(Available around the 2602 area preferably…..or civic.)

What’s Your opinion?

chooks in your own backyard are def the best, beautiful orange yolks and very tasty!
and they eat all your compost as well.

I don’t know – I have never been a fan of eating things that smell worse than my own faecas

Healthy Life in the City Markets sells a couple
of varieties of free range eggs from local
producers. At least they used to. Check Gorman
House on a Saturday too

As a fellow Raiders fan, it pains me to say this, but that is bullcrap Ralph.

As long the chicken’s nutritional needs are met, they lay. Happiness is not a prerequisite in nature for reproduction.

I’d recommend buying your own chickens if you have space. We had 3, which comfortably provided enough eggs for a family. The black and red ones are the best, purchased from Bellchambers in Fyshwick.

Chickens won’t lay if they’re not happy.

I believe the chicken shop in the City Markets sell proper free-range eggs, from memory anyway.
