Free range eggs in Spain

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 pag├ęs 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
