We have ducks and chickens for laying eggs. They all live peacefully together. Beside scratching at the ground for whatever they find, they get certified organic feed containing no soy, no wheat and no corn daily. These eggs get such nice orange yolks throughout the grass growing season. Once it all goes dormant in the winter months, they still nip at it and all but somehow the yolk color doesn't respond the same way. Either way these eggs are so tasty, so fresh, so loaded with eggs-tra nutrition, that you will never want the commercial grocery store eggs again. These girls also get certified organic feed containing no soy, no wheat and no corn daily. For the record, what the USDA defines as free range, a term hijacked by them, is so fraudulent compared to what you expect as a consumer, it's downright shameful. My birds truly get outside in a large area where they run, hang out where ever they feel like, nap outside, eat the ground, all at ease with the help of electric fence netting and livestock guardian dogs to keep them safe from predators. They have shelters scattered about that they can access at will in the event of inclement weather. We have a deal, I make the best life I can for them, and they give me eggs in return.
