These organic eggs are local, free-range, pastured, and farm fresh.
Each dozen eggs is a mix of white, brown and blue-shelled eggs. The blues are laid by Ameraucana chickens, which were bred in the 1970s from the Araucana chickens that originated in Chile and the Falklands. Some experts believe that this is the only chicken breed that is original to the Americas.
Ang’s parents hatch and raise this flock of laying hens, and give them lots of time outdoors in the sunlight, on natural free-range pasture. The chickens get the very best treatment — they are treated with love, and fed on a diversified diet of certified organic, non-GMO foods. We find that this makes for the richest, best-tasting eggs, that are packed with flavour.
The different species of hens naturally produce eggs in a fun variety of colours. The egg shells range in colour from white, through pale blue, a darker green-blue, to brown.
The eggs are freshly-laid within a day or two before arriving at your doorstep. Since the flock is small, we have a limited quantity available.
As hens age, the eggs they lay gradually increase in size. Our flock includes a range of hen ages, so the egg sizes will vary slightly, from medium to large eggs.
We think you’ll love the unique colours, and the organic farm-fresh flavour!
