The happy egg co. is the first free range egg producer to be certified by the American Humane Association. In order to qualify, the happy egg co. had to meet the program's rigorous standards, which include providing each hen with access to 21.8 square feet of outdoor space during the daytime, and access to sheltered areas at nighttime and during inclement weather, as well as nearly 200 additional science-based standards. The happy egg co. hens are free to roam outdoors on pasture daily, as well as flap, perch, forage and dust-bathe, which is natural hen behavior. This certification demonstrates the American Humane Association and the happy egg co. share the belief that these standards do more to support hen welfare and are appropriate to claim true free range production.
The happy egg co. is the proud recipient of Compassion in World Farming’s 2016 Good Egg Award. At The Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards the happy egg co. was recognized for its commitment to providing higher welfare free range eggs to the U.S. Market becoming the first US egg brand to achieve this award. Rachel Dreskin, Head of US Food Business of Compassion in World Farming added: “We congratulate the happy egg co. on this award, and commend them for going above and beyond for their birds. In the U.S. we’re witnessing a major shift in attitude on how laying hens should be raised. The happy egg co. is proof that higher welfare systems offering access to sunlight and pasture are possible on a large, affordable scale.”
Hens who roam, lay eggs that rule.
At the happy egg co. all of our hens are free to roam outdoors, every day. At our free range farms, we let our hens be hens because we believe happy hens lay the best eggs.
