All Waitrose eggs are free range, from British farms.
What's special about Waitrose eggs?
- All of the fresh hen’s eggs we sell are free range.
- All of our hen’s eggs are laid on the British mainland, mostly in England and some in Scotland and Wales.
- Our eggs are laid on farms we know and and trust.
In line with other responsible retailers, when our free-range hens come to the end of their lives, their meat goes into the food supply chain, as has been the case for many years. Under our strict animal health policy, our farmers do not offer birds for re-homing as it is vital that the industry as a whole maintains the traceability of flocks at all times.

These come from chickens which are free to roam from dawn to dusk, with access to food, drink and shelter when they want them. At night, they're housed safely in purpose-built henhouses, often powered by wind and solar energy. Their eggs are laid in quiet, comfortable nestboxes, and collected by the farmers each day.
Clarence Court Free Range Eggs are known for their excellent flavour and quality, as well as the care and attention given by the poulterers to the health and welfare of their hens. Free to range and forage on green pasture from dawn to dusk, they lead a natural and happy life.
The birds enjoy the finest cereal based diet with a generous helping of sun drenched maize, the privacy of warm secluded nest boxes, dust baths, trees and shrubs for cover - in fact everything that every healthy hen requires.
