Perhaps the best thing about the happy egg company is that they clearly understand that happy hens make happy eggs. They are committed to meeting and exceeding all welfare standards to ensure they do the best for their hens, but just what is it they do that makes the hens so happy?
All of their hens are free to roam all day which gives them the freedom they need to live happy, contented lives. They're looked after by dedicated happy egg farmers who give them plenty of TLC- they're given a top-quality cereal based diet and plenty of wide open space in which to roam, complete with trees, grasses and play equipment to keep them entertained. They can shelter under the trees, scratch around in sandpits, perch on towers and forage in the range, and it's this kind of interaction that keeps the hens happy, content and continually producing eggs.
The company are totally dedicated to the welfare of all of their hens and only farms that meet the highest of standards will get the happy egg co seal of approval, and it isn't just the hens that benefit either. Because they're all free range they're able to roam around as they please, pecking on grass which gives them extra lutein, and research has shown that lutein-enriched eggs can improve the taste - that's what makes the eggs so tasty. With the happy egg company you can be safe in the knowledge that you're getting tasty eggs that have come from truly happy hens, so next time you're doing the grocery shopping, make sure to keep an eye out for the happy egg co and add some happiness to your day.
