    I did a Little resreach on Morning Fresh Farm and Found out there either Egg Land Best or asst with them. And If You Go to Egg Land's Best Web Site On there FAQ on there Web Site that there aminal's are Caged. But they advertise as Caged Free and Organic. So I Would like everyone to Support People that are Truly doing Caged Free and Organic and buy from local source's that are this way. And not Buy From the retail Store's like king sooper's/albertson/kruger/safeway and egg land's best.

    My birds are all caged.

    Granted, their cage is large enough to provide more than enough space for each bird, but it's still a cage. My quail are 2 to a cage, except the chicks which right now are 30 to a cage (it's a really big cage though). My breeding chickens are 3 to a cage, 1 roo 2 hens and a sign over their cage that says 'do not disturb, fowl porno in process'.

    I think it's important to remeber that "Cage Free" has not been strictly enforced & defined. They can say cage free, but it might not be the way it sounds. Are they still in cages or larger pens? Do they have access to the outdoors? Some operations give the hens acess to the outdoors, but crowd them quite a bit. Other operations actually use giant chicken arks and move them around pastures. Those are probably the ones that people think of when they think of free range, but not all of the free rage producers are really free range as we might think of it. It's important to do your research and use your consumer dollars wisely. There's nothing wrong with supporting the kind of business that reflects your values no matter what they may be. However, it takes a lot of research on the part of the individual to dig up the truth about products that we eat. And not just eggs. There are a lot of terms used in the food industry that sound like they mean something, but really don't. I think "natural" is one of them. If i'm not mistaken, that can be put on a product and has no enforced meaning so they can slap that on just about anything.
