    What do you feed chickens and ducks for organic eggs?

    Is Free Range considered organic?

    Free range generally means they are not confined in the daytime, altho there is a lot of variation in how much range the chickens have. Organic means the feed you buy is grown without chemicals and adheres to USDA standards. The USDA regulates organic labeling.
