Our hens go outside.

Turns out that’s kind of a big deal.

Unlike cage-free birds that never leave the barn, our free range hens spend their days outdoors: foraging on pasture, perching, playing and flapping their wings in that adorable chicken-y way.

Beyond cage-free: what is free range?

Let’s just say the hens have found their happy place.

The happy egg co. is bringing humanely-raised eggs to everyone.

And we are committed to clarity and honesty with our customers because we know how confusing egg packaging can be.

Sometimes cage-free cartons show pictures of hens on grass even though those birds live their whole lives inside. Meanwhile, cartons of eggs from caged chickens don’t say anything about living conditions. And why would they? Battery cages aren’t very nice, to say the least. But our free range hens play in the sunshine and chicken-out to their hearts’ content. At the happy egg co., you can be assured that you’re buying eggs from truly happy hens that aren’t cooped up all day.

Our girls give us so much. It’s only right that we treat them well.

We believe that farms should cater to their wild instincts—like flying, perching and pecking on green pasture. It makes happy birds. And happy birds makes delicious eggs, with the nutritious, golden yolks that nature intended. Our farms let hens be hens, because we believe that when they live better, they lay better eggs.

We are famous!
