These are decidedly average eggs. BUT I buy them to support higher hen welfare. I don't think Ocado or Waitrose have done a particularly good job at explaining to customers why they should buy these over the essentials eggs so I just thought I would fill in the gaps- "In the UK, most hens bred for laying have part of their beaks removed by infrared burner without anaesthetic when they are chick, to reduce the risk of injuries in flocks from feather pecking. The only way to avoid eggs laid by beak-trimmed hens is to buy those certified organic by the Soil Association, which does not support the practice, or free-range British Blacktail eggs marketed by Waitrose, which pays farmers a premium for birds that have not undergone the procedure"
