Woodcote

We source our Woodcote eggs as locally as possible, and all our hens are reared in the UK to high welfare standards. This means you can be sure the eggs you’re buying are of the best possible quality, whether you’re using them for brunch, baking or as a high protein lunchbox snack. Read on for more information about our suppliers, their hens and these welfare standards.

OUR EGG RANGE

ABOUT OUR HENS

All our free range eggs are produced under the RSPCA scheme. Hens are naturally inquisitive animals with a strong desire to carry out their natural behaviours, which, with laying hens, can include:

  • Investigation Hens like to explore their environment, for example by pecking at objects and scratching at the ground to unearth things in the soil.
  • Comfort and grooming behaviours These include feather ruffling, head scratching, body shaking, wing stretching and flapping.  
  • Vocalisation When hens are not provided with access to something they need, such as a nest site or appropriate dust bathing material, they often vocalise more out of frustration, sometimes producing a specific vocalisation known as a ‘gakel-call’. Hens also vocalise to communicate with their flock mates, for socialising and warning.
