All of my birds were free range,they had 3 acres to roam around on. The whites firm and the yolks that vibrant orange/yellow. No comparison to the pale yellow yolks of a store bought egg from a factory chicken. In addition to their regular rations, The birds ate grass, seed, flowers, anything that I planted, lots of fruit, just about any veggie or food scrap went out the back door on the lawn, and would be gone within minutes. They also ate LOTS of grass hoppers in the summer, and on occasion would kill and eat mice or voles, but I think they did this more for sport than a meal.
