Commercial chicken farms that produce eggs and chicken meat use force feeding techniques to make chickens grow faster, also adding hormones to speed up the process to meet market demands. In some countries, chickens are fed fishmeal, which affects the tastes of the meat, and the eggs, making consumers choose alternatives, like free range poultry and eggs. You may pay a little more for your free range poultry products, but being organic like Mother Nature wants makes them a healthier alternative. Many homeowners and those with small holdings rear their own livestock naturally, with free range poultry producing the amount of eggs they need, and the meat from their livestock.
