If you do a bit of research online, you should find brand names and family farm names to watch out for that are free range. With eggs, dairy and chicken, it often says "free range" on the label.

u have to be very careful.. labels arent always correct.. free range simply means you can give them as little as 5 minutes a day outside!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and not only that..but just because they are free range doesnt mean there not cruel, for example trimming of chickens beaks and also the tail cutting of baby pigs and teeth pulling without any pain killer so you need to do some research. there is a website that compares all brands and tells you exactly what there guidlines are..
http://www.animalwelfarelabels.org.au  check  out this website..its great just select from the tab which product and it will tell you who complies and who doesnt!
hope this helps.. and congrats on your choice to change your ways!!! lets hope one day you decide to go meat free!!  ecstatic

Hi CaseyC,
There's info on the website which breaks down what the different labels mean. You can find it here: http://makeitpossible.com/guides/

You might also be interested in the tips here about eating less animal products altogether: http://makeitpossible.com/kids/make-the-switch.php

Hope it helps!

Just remember, bred free range is different from free range, it means the babies are born in a free range environment, then taken to factory farms when they're a bit older! peace

The ethical shopper guide app is a good one to have on hand. I bought it for my phone and I check every product with it. Being vegan, I don't need to worry about checking those products except for pet products. It does come in handy to tell my partner (a meat eater) what's "good" as well. Especially interesting to know that Coca Cola murders people and Nestle owns all of North America's water supply. Haha What has this world come to?

Should be available for iPods. I highly doubt the RSPCA on is okay, they are not very reliable. sad They will approve an owner just because the dog isn't on its death bed yet but bony is okay. :/
