Free range eggs in Spain

February 9th, 2010 | by nick |

It is easier than it used to be to buy free-range eggs in urban areas in Spain. But beware of misleading bucolic pictures on egg cartons. Free-range eggs are often called huevos de granja (huevos de pagés in Catalonia) but if you don’t trust the seller, the best way is to check the first number of the codes on the eggs themselves:

0-hens raised outdoors ecologically

1-hens raised outdoors

2-barn-raised hens

3-battery-farmed hens
