5 Freedoms Every Free Range Hen Should Have, From the happy egg co.

O'er the Land of the Free, and the Home of the Happy Hens

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - July 01, 2014) - This Independence Day, the free to roam hens at the happy egg co. are celebrating five liberties that every Free Range hen should have.

  1. Free to roam - Hens at the happy egg co. are given daily access to five acres of lush green pasture, the size of four football fields, which is equivalent to 14 square feet of space per bird.
  2. Free to go outdoors - Hens at the happy egg co. spend every day on pasture under natural sunlight, getting their Vitamin D from 10 a.m. to dusk.
  3. Free to play - Hens at the happy egg co. are given play structures for perching, pecking kits and toys, and sand pits for dust-bathing to their hearts' content.
  4. Free from harm - Every night at dusk, the happy egg co. hens are brought into the barn where they spend the night safe from predators and harsh weather.
  5. Free to be loved - Hens at the happy egg co. are cared for by expert family farmers, and given plenty of clean water and a vegetarian feed to go with their pasture-foraged diet, as nature intended. The feed never has added meat, bone meal, hormones or antibiotics -- we love them just the way they are.

the happy egg co. raises the bar on humanely raised animal welfare, and that deserves some celebration. It is the only 100 percent truly Free Range egg brand with an animal welfare program that covers living conditions, feed and expertise of caregivers.

"90-95% of egg-laying hens in the U.S. still endure lives in battery cages," said David Wagstaff, COO of Noble Foods Inc. "We're proud to exceed the industry's Free Range requirements, as well as those for organic and cage-free eggs."

Packaged in a sunshine-yellow carton made of recycled and compostable material, happy eggs stand out for their color and clarity in the egg aisle. With distribution continuing to expand to meet consumer demand, Free Range eggs from the happy egg co. are now conveniently available in more than 2,600 grocery stores across the country.
