The kids and I started going to a neat little farmers market here on the weekends. There is also a Health food store out there that sells free range eggs and whole chicken. I haven't tried the chicken yet, but we got some of the eggs, and to my surprise the kids LOVE them. They told me they taste wayyy better than store bought. They really weren't much more than store bought price wise...and I noticed the whole chickens were actually less than the store kind. So, heres my silly question...why aren't all eggs and chicken in the store free range? I mean, who wants all those hormones and whatever in their food? Does it have something to do with mass production, and its cheaper for the farmers to not do the free range stuff? This really has my brain working about all the chemicals and such that are in our food.
