Free-range eggs and market confusion

Something a little different today. Went shopping today for some eggs. Needed to buy free range to avoid being excommunicated. But there is so much choice down in the supermarket to describe some egg where I’m sure the space per chicken can be measure in square centimetres.

Below are some photos of egg packets. Any idea what they mean? I don’t!

I’m guessing that “cage-free” and “colony laid” aren’t really as good as they sound. What is a colony anyway. Don’t ants live in a colony?

It even makes me suspicious about whether “Purely Free Range™” or “Pasture Poultry” actually mean what they are claiming…. and I don’t even really care that much about the chickens.
