    Right now I would bet that the one on the right is the free range…….am I correct?

      Laura…..once you start eating fresh farm eggs from free range chickens you will not go back.

    Anyone who has had free range eggs knows the answer- egg on the left. Sorry Laura, the yolk tells the truth- dark yummy orange loaded with vitamins unlike the other egg, the poor hen who produced the pale egg, I feel badly for those girls kept in cages.

    Egg on the left is the free range one – no question – deep coloured yolk, white holding together nicely. What a great photo..

    I just had a couple of country eggs and they were delicious and beautiful in color and texture.

      I was myself slow to convince that there was a difference……and now if I eat a conventional egg I can really tell.

    Good visual. I can’t imagine why you’d have the conventional egg handy.

      We recently conducted a taste test between a supermarket chicken and a Wild Ramp Market chicken. Prepared side-by-side in the oven using the same roasting preparations, once the chickens were complete, I was the only one who knew which meat was in Bag A and which was in Bag B. The results of the taste test were interesting. It was about 50-50. The people who preferred the grocery store chicken were experiencing free range or pastured chicken meat for the first time. The most frequent comment was that the supermarket chicken was moister. When I explained that the bird had been given chemicals, hormones and antibiotics during its life and a solution of water and artificial flavors injected into the carcass after processing, several recoiled. But many shrugged, commented they preferred it, and walked away.

        Reminds me of why I could never understand people actually eating Wonder Bread. It always made me think of moistened, wadded up Kleenex. But I know of kids who would eat nothing else….. go figure.

        I’ve had this comment too about commercial chicken. It’s partly cost talking as well as it being what they’re used to.

        The bread thing that Gunta mentions – my Dad would ONLY eat white bread – he’d grown up in the depression on home made brown bread and grew to hate it. He like the fluffy texture, and he associated white bread with better bread.

    Good one! I was going to guess the deep yellow one. Just makes sense.

    It is always nice when someone takes information from the Wild Ramp blog to share with their readers!
