You have to go into it with the mindset that the chickens are not pets. We don't name our chickens. We feed them and they feed us. It makes it easier when they die or we kill them for dinner.

What are the best eggs to buy? I know pastures and bug fed are ideal according to PaleoApproved. This raises the omega 3 ratio. Can't find bug fed eggs in NYC. But flaxseed fed pastured also have high omega 3. Discuss.

The omega-3 in commercial flax-fed eggs usually has alpha linoleic acid (ALA) which isn't well used by humans -- conversion to usable omega 3 is low. Obviously pastured eggs are the best. When I can't get them I go for free range, and up my... (more)

Yes, I have heard of things like "pastured" butter. Recently I saw some "pasture-based" dairy. Is this the same thing as "pastured"? Or is it that they spent an hour a month out on the range, and then everything else conventional?
