So I thought I would throw this out for opinions. A coworker was talking about some eggs I gave her and saying she could tell by the taste that they were organic. But the fact is I do not think I can say that they are. To start with I always start my chicks on medicated feed (Purina) It may not be organic but I have always had healthy chicks and don't see a reason to change. I also feed Purina Layena Crumbles to my adult birds and I do not believe that it is organic feed either, but they lay nice big eggs with thick shells and great orange yolks. They also get table scraps including leftovers from fast food places, old pizza, and yes, Cheetos. My wife buy the big bags of crunchy Cheetos, and since I am doing keto, they don't all get eaten and, when the start to go stale I give them to the chickens. this is by far their favorite treat and they attack them immediately and with gusto. I have a friend who only feeds organic, the feed costs 5 times as much and he has to add oyster shell for extra calcium. His eggs are comparable but he often talks about how thin and fragile the shells are (sometimes puts his thumb through one as he picks it up). So what, if anything is the advantage of "organic" eggs and can I consider mine organic if the girls are eating Cheetos?
