Ours is one of only two outdoor laying hen operations in the country, on a commercial scale. The so called free range hens did not even know it was raining today as not one of them would have been allowed out of the barn in which they live and lay their eggs.
Of course their sisters in the cages (24 out of 25 million laying hens in this country) did not know it was raining either.
My hens had their first taste of winter today. See the video below.
Like the other GoPro videos (on this site and the Vimeo one) this one is unedited. I apologise for not cleaning the smear off the screen first so please try to look past it.
If you want to know more about what an Eggmobile is then please click here and if you are interested in the consumer fraud known as free range eggs then click here. Perhaps consumer fraud is too strong a term so lets rather say that the national retailers and egg industry are mislabelling the barn raised eggs.
You are welcome to come and visit the farm anytime to see the hens and the global warming reversing cattle.
