Bad Eggs?

We have our own chooks in the back garden, but I cannot speak for all the rest.

An analysis of data provided by the egg-producing industry has confirmed what most consumers have suspected for some time: it is doubtful that enough free-range layer hens exist in Australia to produce the number of eggs labelled and sold as free-range by retailers.

In the year to January 2007, the Australian free-range flock would have had to grow by more than 37 per cent to match the increased sale of free-range eggs recorded by the Australian Egg Corporation in its annual reports.
