Why are free-range eggs so much more expensive?

    The answer to this question has to do with the fundamental economics of the production of eggs. Free-range eggs require more space, a lot more space actually. They must be able to stretch and walk around while caged ones sometimes never walk around a yard their entire lives. The cheaper the costs the more productive you can make the chickens the cheaper it is going to be. Basically you are “paying” for the chickens to have a more decent life. Be cautious though because free-range does not necessarily correlate to happy chickens. Sometimes they are packed into yards and the definition of “free-range” is stretched. Before buying I suggest you research your company and see what kind of ratings they have and what the general buzz is about them.
