Default Woodland eggs.

I've been eating eggs produced from hens allowed to roam freely in managed woodlands for a couple of years now but yesterday they'd sold out of them so for the first time in ages I had to buy regular free range eggs and I was amazed at the difference in taste. The free range eggs didn't taste bad like they'd spoiled but they just tasted wrong somehow. I'm guessing that the reason there was such a noticable difference in taste is that when hens are allowed to eat what they want their diets must be far more natural and varied than the diets of regular free range eggs which makes me wonder whether we should place regular free range eggs in the same nutritional catagory as grain fed beef.

I choose Woodland eggs too, when I buy eggs. Free range is a good second choice but you can't beat eggs from hens who are allowed to roam and eat what they want. I imagine that the less stressed a bird is, the better her eggs will taste.
