  1. Aww Marty, he's tearing up. My heart goes to him and all his efforts!

  2. I'm freaked out by the dolls 'hanged' on her wall 13:17

  3. They are singing… right… They are NOT song birds! They would crow, coo or cry out!


  5. I hate how eggs taste

  6. I want eggs from a chicken that was harassed, chased, beaten and generally mistreated. Where can I get those? lol

  7. Meh. Most people could never, ever tell the difference on taste alone. Period.

  8. Those cages look like my apartment in Mississauga. I can understand the pain those chickens are going through LOL

  9. Now Marty can put that info on his packaging and get more customers, as he should. He deserves it.

  10. i do not eat eggs…but if i bought an would be the meadows…free range are great for your lawn and grass, flowers, they eat the bugs organically…NOISY!!!!!!, forget TV, phone use. i think the meadows man cried in the end…so proud of his product…good for him in his life on earth…good values

  11. I was hoping to find out if brown eggs were healthier than white one's. The taste test seemed to be all brown eggs. The interesting thing I just noticed: why is the caged chickens all white? Lack of sunlight? Or stress? Plumage was noticeably absent as well.

  12. The farmer that tear up you sir is a what a human being is supposed to be love and respect

  13. the guy with the long beard says he doesnt really care about the treatment of the chickens, what a nice guy…….not.

  14. That farmer man, now will buy pasture fed, Probably consume less to get what I need anyway. kudos to him

  15. Gees that one guy in the back has it out for the chickens 🐓 🐔 for some odd reason LOL!

  16. remember, theres a farmer on the farm

  17. lol, with the camera here, the birds get a little bit nervous, that is hilarious

  18. Are these people eating for taste, nutrition, or to save money? Value nutrition!

  19. Hi folks I buy Amish 2.00 a doz.They are all free range!

  20. The best eggs are no eggs.

  21. Im not a rich person and so I need to save money. However, paying a higher price for eggs from chickens that are treated ethically is ok by me, though there is a limit to everything. In the end, what I have had to do is buy eggs less often which makes me appreciate them more when I do buy them. That's acceptable for me for now because that also equals less waste.

  22. got my own chooks now

  23. How far does my morality extend?

    As far as u can afford…ur disposable income drives that bus…

    And no…i've not bought the lie of cage free…organic..being the best.

  24. These people are morons. They imagine themselves living in a cage and think that applies to a chicken. Chickens don't think like humans; in fact, it's a stretch to call the neural activity in their pea brains "thought" at all. They don't sit there contemplating their lot in life. They don't daydream about some ideal alternative life they wish they were living. If they aren't hungry, in fear, or in pain, they are content.

  25. 13:18 What are those sculptures hanging on the wall in the background?

  26. com on! its not like yall make minimum wage here! buy yoyr organic cage free egss!

  27. No eggs are the best!

  28. Organic is only about 3-4 bucks for a dozen that’s extremely affordable

  29. I wouldn’t mind paying 8 bucks for the real cage free that had the best nutrition thats still much cheaper than even cheap junk food

  30. Wouldn't buy these sorry. Freedom is good health for any leaving thing.

  31. Interesting, although the testing procedure was more like a game and not done properly. But obviously, organic produce is nutritionally superior and scientifically healthier than factory-farm produce. I recall as a child that chickens egg yolks were always pale yellow, and remember the controversy about it. Some time later, after egg yolks were a bright golden yellow colour, it was disclosed that chicken farmers were adding a yellow colour agent to the chickens feed. Such is the nature of corrupt conventional farming.

  32. Great information! 👍🏻

  33. You will torture chickens for less than $4 a week. What a moral degenerate you are.

  34. What are the figurines hanging on Catherine's wall at 13:06?

  35. So CBC Marketplace is always like 80% good then they drop the ball because they don't have any science-based specialists with them. A nutritionist is nowhere close to what you need. In this you should've got an ornitholigist and a food scientist, and especially stress the fact that "organic" means nothing. This was all about what was fed to the chickens, and that was not even mentioned.


  37. Those 'enriched' cage was more sad than the cramped ones IMO. So many birds had so bald spots.

  38. What is it with Canadian men and crying? I saw one crying over a house he didn’t get in a different episode of Market Place and now a farmer crying over his eggs!! 😂

  39. Organic!! I need to get my own chickens.

  40. Look how much healthier the free range chickens are. Their feathers aren't balding or plucked out and they look so much healthier. Home raised chicken eggs that are fresh are so much better tasting!

  41. I have 6 chickens on my property in my back yard that free roam my garden and go back in the hen house at night and takes nearly no time to keep them happy and healthy and I get 6 eggs a day a, people should just keep a few chickens themselves at home, problem solved. Chickens need room to roam and scratch , stretch their wings and perch. Chickens don’t belong in tiny cages their whole lives, you wouldn’t keep a dog or cat in a cage barely big enough for their whole lives

  42. I buy barn eggs or free range

  43. most sickest part of all. he has allot of land.. just grass nothing els. family business? no…

  44. I have chickens. I raise them on organic feeds and they free range my 20 acre farm eating anything they find interesting. My eggs have yolks that are deep yellow to orangish and not the anemic looking lemon yellow yolks I find in the supermarket eggs. That's nutrition and because they eat better quality things. My organic feed is very expensive since it has real ingredients and none of the stuff most commercial feeds have like ground up dead chickens and other nasty stuff. Notice the hens in the cages, even the advanced or enhanced ones, and see their Bazooka Joe bubble gum sickly looking pink color combs and wattles compared to the free range organic chickens with their red combs. Notice the condition of the feathers in the caged birds compared to the others. Even in the larger cages they are all either damaged or missing. That's not a sign of health. Notice the freerange birds eyes how clear and clean they look compared to production birds? The comment they prefer to be in the barn is crazy. Birds naturally are curious and like being in open spaces as long as they feel safe. When I open my coop in the morning they run out the door to see what's extra for breakfast. When I used to feed commercial feeds years ago the hens did ok as they were supplemented by the things they ate outdoors. When I started using a quality organic feed egg production went up 25-30%, their feathers were smoother and looked better and they were more active. I'm convinced organic freerange is the way to go for eggs and meat chickens. Yes they cost more but this is something you consume. Isn't it worth it to eat better? You are what you eat!

  45. If you can't afford to buy organic, stop eating eggs. It's not that hard to do. Millions have already done it. This is the way of the future. Apart from the taste and nutrition, eating conventional eggs much like eating conventionally grown anything comes with a huge price when it comes to your health. Choose wisely, pay now, or pay later.

  46. Chickens do not experience happiness. If they have food, water and regulated temperature, they have no other needs. If you observe a lot of chickens, they are all free ranging, each one aching as if they were the only chicken in town. Chickens do not socialize, neither do they want to. My parents were chicken farmers.

  47. 15:13 HELLO (: WORLD 🙂

  48. I have to eat only eggs. About 5000 a year. And my issue is in shelf life and repacking. As many eggs have gone passed their shelf life into repackaging. Also how they treat them in washing them. Do not know why but use to see eggs go green before being grey or rotten. As I see lots of rotten eggs from stores that do not sell many. Where they can be repackaged three times. And not one by one. As it is usually only one or two per dozen. When they all should turn at the same time.

  49. 7:31 SEE you in hell <#

  50. Remind me of Chicken Run movie

  51. I'm distracted by the black figures seemingly hanging from a rope on Catherine's wall🤔

  52. Nestlaid chickens look sick. What a sham.

  53. There was a Batman tv series character called EggHead.

  54. I am a big fan of this show (not Canadian) but the way they get their data is not the most accurate method. Still enjoy this show though.

  55. I wonder how happy that farmer would be in a cage?
    I would be happy to see him in a cage, this is so very wrong.
    DNA remembers stress and this is very upsetting.
    I bet he wouldn't raise them in a cage if it cost more to do, lazy fsfkajsldjasld asd holes.

  56. I am happy that some chickens get to see sunlight and a walk in the grass all day.

  57. Why are the chickens bald all over? They look unhealthy and stressed

  58. garden hens are fine, it's the rooster that's the problem for the neighbors. if that bugger crows one more time, i'm going to have rooster for dinner, but without the rooster they won't lay. they should have, rent a rooster. job done by rooster. they do it with bulls

  59. 14 : 20 those birds are bigger and in better condition

  60. freerange, need a cocker spaniel or collie, to round them up in the evening, and to deter foxes and other predators

  61. Liquid flesh , why would you eat something that comes from a chickens period . Disgusting if you think about it .

  62. I have never seen what’s so darn great about eggs lol I’d like them they stink look like boogys lol 😂 but soooo many ppl love them 😐🤷‍♀️ what’s wrong with me lol

  63. Brought tears seeing organic cage free farmer hold back tears.😘😘

  64. But Canada is sooooo niceeeee, Canadians always apologise… What a shithole.

  65. But there is no one to sell it

  66. So what do they feed organic chickens? Seemingly the eat the grass outside so the cost on feed is less than that of caged birds who only eat birdfeed. So , why are organic eggs expensive by margin of 4 dollars?

  67. I buy organic free range. I don't care how it tastes but I do care about happier chickens

  68. Omg the organic egg farmer is adorable

  69. WOW shocking news. Made me really think about the caged bird. no more eggs period!

  70. Would 10/10 buy the last dude's eggs if they had them in the states

  71. 20 years behind Europe…

  72. Sad what these farmers do to the animals. Vegan is the way to go. Imagine seeing a human slave and say " well they're happy being a slave! They go to work and smile sometimes!" Wow

  73. Aww I love his passion for his chickens and egg product I feel the same about my chickens 🥰

  74. This 'chef' is also passed off as a random passerby on the oj segment! You can tell by the silver ring on his left hand!

  75. nutrition and taste drive me. If I can't afford it I will try to grow it.

  76. There is no real reason for the cage-free eggs to cost more. On top of that, my own eggs are so beautiful no egg bought anywhere else has ever beat them. The yolks are almost orange.

  77. you guys are tricky. that chef is the same Asian guy they interviewed on the orange juice episode.

  78. Organic Meadow is the way👍🏼✌🏼

  79. What is the difference between an white egg shell colour and an brown egg shell colour

  80. 16:52 Yes he really is passionate about his eggs. Good Man.

  81. 12:27 – "Most farmers have battery cages. They'll have until 2036 to get rid of them" – in my opinion that is too long a time to wait. It shouldn't take 20 years to implement a change like that.

  82. They better be feeding those poor chickens greens and such, no wonder why they resort to cannibalism, they're not getting the nutrition they need, the nutrition they would get in their natural habitat. I always buy the most expensive kind of eggs, of course I know which kinds to get in which kinds not to, for my own health and because I'm voting with my dollars.

  83. Animal cruelty is immoral.

  84. That guy who says chickens are happy in prison cells is either lying or ignorant. Of course he is trying to protect his business, and justify his actions.

  85. If I know the chickens are living a healthier life I will pay three times as much. That's why I do, and also because the eggs are more concentrated in nutrition.

  86. Marty is awesome. That's how you take care of chickens, especially if you're going to steal their eggs.

  87. The eggs I buy at Fred Meyers are the most expensive, they're also darker, don't fall apart as easy, harder shell, tastes better, more nutrition, and of course I can feel better about how the chickens are taken care of.

  88. Do you see a bird smile? Lol just saying 😄 a caged bird is happy the guy says.

  89. I am enjoying CBC Marketplace just discovered today…………I do not eat eggs twice I got salmonella poisoning (Edwina Currie scandal in the UK)and I was really very ill for a whole week. So have not eaten any kind of an egg in 30 years

  90. 15:14 That hen looking at the camera is hilarious. I wish I could have my own in the backyard.

  91. I think kids have a better sense of taste. I was a picky eater as a kid b/c I tasted everything too strongly. Now, my taste buds aren't as good.

  92. I would rather pay more for Organic Meadow. I am going to switch to Organic Meadow! Good job! Much better nutrition, totally worth it! Top all, they raise their chicken in a much better way!

  93. Back yard Chicken’s has the best 💯💃🏾🕺🏾
