No doubt when Terry (and several others) stop following the 3 sad idiots, the 3 sad idiots will stop following him Platty.

Perhaps you should suggest that to him because it seems he is unable to work it out for himself.

That's a bummer! I only buy free range where the hens have access to outdoors - hope it gets sorted soon, but guess safety has to come first and not only for us but those poor birds as well.

Last year, I dug up the most enormous egg in the garden.

It was about four times larger than the usual hen's egg.

I was not able to eat it, as spade had smashed it, but it seemingly was still fresh. ie no bad smell.

For quite some time, it had me puzzled: what on earth lays eggs like that, and would bury them in a garden in the city?

Having pursued some enquiries, I concluded that it must be a goose egg, stolen by a fox, and buried in my garden. It appears that foxes do that.

Kinda confirmed when someone loaned me a proximity activated IR camera, and I was able to see the fox return and search and dig fruitlessly for its stash.

Annemarie:

If you read the very first post by Platty, he said:

"No Free Range Eggs ....."
On sale from next week. All birds have to be inside because of the flu. They will be labelled as "Barn Eggs."

All birds, including chickens, geese, turkeys, parrots - ALL birds - must not be seen outside, except of course the wild birds over which we have no control.

can't see that, he was a big lad

forcing someone to quit is what Terry did to ray, attacked him all the time and came out with nasty/personal comments driving him away.

I for one are hoping ray, and others, come back on now the site bully is gone..........for now anyway.

"forcing someone to quit is what Terry did to ray, attacked him all the time and came out with nasty/personal comments driving him away"

Forgive me NJ but you obviously hadn't noticed.
Terry being the vindictive induvial he is was doing his best to get 4 people banned from or to leave this forum. In fact he demanded it on several occasions. He has tried the same thing before and doubt at some point in the future he will return under yet another name and attempt to pick up where he left off........Its what he does and he has been doing it for years. The unfortunate thing is he is a compulsive liar who craves attention and aggression. He takes people in on the way and manipulates them with his charms and lies and they fall for it......... much like you did.

Now look where we are.........A new chapter begins....... Terry has gone and the 4 of us are still here. What can I say?........I suggest you try to learn to live with the fact and move on

BTW.....I have a suspicion that his next incarnation will probably begin with the letter W........lets see

Morrisons have over the last few weeks been selling "free range eggs" no signs to say they are "barn eggs" Most of the bird flu restrictions have now been lifted so you can now let your birds outside.

Why did the man order an chicken and an egg from Amazon?
To see which came first.
Which side of the chicken has the most feathers?
The outside.
What do you get if you cross a chicken with an elephant?
A peckyderm.

an egg is an egg, As in the saying " as true as eggs are eggs " the only difference is , the free range hens get a better life, Having said that, All eggs grow thicker membranes as they age , whether they are free range or battery and they all go to supermarkets.
The very best eggs are the ones the hens lay yesterday and you ate today, no matter in a field , a hutch or in your house, the best line i ever heard in a movie was the chat up line, " hey girl, how do ya like your eggs in a morning " and she answered, " unfertilized "

The diet of the hens makes a huge difference.

The difference between pale yellow, and deep orange tasty yolks.

Replied: 2nd May 2022 at 22:47

Posted by: tomplum (9420) 

With that in mind Ena, A battery hen's diet is better than a free range hen's because, A free range will choose what it likes whereas a battery hen eats what she's given,

No, that's no yolk, look at the colour of corn fed chickens, I suppose their eggs are yellow,

They ain't allowed to add artificial pigmenting agents to chicken feed.
Natural ones, no barrier.

So marigold petals added to get more yellow in the yolk and capsaicin (from sweet/Chilli peppers) to get more orange.

An egg farmer I once knew had produce that was widely sought and commanded a premium. He acquired meat waste which he put out for the blowflies. Periodically, a shaker violently agitated the mesh screen upon which they sat. The hens swarmed to eat the maggots which fell from the meat.

It really made the premises stink though.
