Chicken Eggs

Traveling to a field work site I came across one of the larger egg producers in Washington State. The packaging for the eggs notes that the chickens at this farm are free ranging. Agricultural friends have told me that the egg labeling is accurate. I got to see what a large scale free range chicken operation looks like. Thousands of chickens meandering through open grass fields.   

The farm is Wilcox Farms in the Nisqually River valley. They kindly allowed me access across the farm to assess a site saving me from a rather long bushwhack along rough river bottom land.

Last week I passes by another large egg operation. I observed no chickens at that facility which is consistent with the labeling on the egg packages.
