    I am going to start selling some of my eggs. My hens get to range in about a quarter acre fenced area all day, and then are locked up at night. Would this still be considered range free, cage free eggs? If not what would they be called? thank you!

    depending on who you ask, they would be Free Range. Some would say since they are in a fenced area that they are not true "free range" but as far as I'm concerned, if they are allowed to go outside and eat bugs and grass, then they are free range.

    They are definitely Cage Free.

    I'd call them Free Range.

    I would call them free range and cage free. [​IMG]
