Taken on an open day at the Ultimate Egg and Poultry Company near Levin, New Zealand. These are barn layers, ranging outside when they choose and deciding whether to forage in the sun or stand in the shade. The egg company has animal welfare accreditation and produces SPCA approved eggs. Each egg is stamped with ID so the consumer can trace the eggs back to this farm.
