Difference organic eggs and free range eggs

People tend to back to nature, by consuming the organic product including egg. The organic eggs are believed free from chemical and antibiotics residue that harm for human body. In long term the chemical can defect vital organ such heart, lever, and kidney.
That is why people prefer organic rather than common eggs. However, some people criticize to the organic product because it is not organic that as people think. People think that organic eggs lay from hen that is free from antibiotics. However, USDA tolerates the antibiotics as long it is limited. In Russia, the organic egg lays from the hen that is free from antibiotics.
In USA, the hen for organic eggs should out from the cage at least five minutes a day.  I think it is no enough for hen stay for five minutes only. They should out at least for six hours a day so hey can eat the organic food outside. I do not know whether the organics egg farm use organic chicken feed or commercial food. Supposedly, the government forbids commercial food for organic chicken. They should make the chicken food from cereal, mineral, and others.
If you do no sure to organic chicken in supermarket, you have to buy egg free range chicken. The eggs must be better than the organic chicken. The free range rarely uses the antibiotics to increase the immunity. The farmer will not use it. They just slaughter the chicken that goes sick.
The chicken in free range just eats the seed such as corn, oat, sorghum, and paddy. The owner does no feed the chicken with vitamin and others. Sometimes the owner also feed them with vegetables and fruit. The chicken in free range live happier than chicken in eggs.
Check also the environment of free range chicken. The environment should health too. The eggs from the polluted area must be bad too. The bad water also influences the quality of the eggs. The polluted area also influences the grass and weeds, which are also the chicken food. The polluted grass can harm for the chicken. After the chicken eats the polluted grass, the residue will stay in its body and it also pollutes the chicken eggs too.
You can also build free range chicken if you have large backyard. Ten hens can provide three eggs a day. I think it is enough for your family.
