Q What are free run and free range eggs?

Free run eggs are produced by hens that roam in open-concept barns with slat or litter-covered floors equipped with nests and perches.

Free range eggs are produced in a similar environment to free run eggs but the hens have access to outdoor runs as well. Due to the severe Canadian climate, outdoor access is only seasonally available.

There are no differences between the nutrient content of these eggs and classic shell eggs.
