    From a gross protein level, there is no difference between battery farm eggs and organic free range eggs. (Well according to the packages I have here...)

    From a personal point of view I would much prefer free range, they taste better and I agree with alienmuaythai on the cage thing.

    So... do the packages indicate levels of Omega-3s?

    True. If my hunch/memory is correct, the free range ones will have some, and thus will list them under the nutritional information. The normal ones won't (I looked 'em up on the USDA NND, and if I'm parsing it right, the omega-3 content of an XL egg is about 23 mg).

    Again, though, I think it's a question of feed rather than lifestyle - see this.

    Organic foods are not nutritionally different from non-organic.

    Omega3 enhanced eggs have nothing to do with the chicken's living condition and everything to do with its diet.

    So if you care about all that animal rights crap, want to support local business, and/or are paranoid about antibiotics/pesticides then buy organic.
    If you want to spend less on food that is nutritionally the same ****, then buy non-organic.

    Hmm... I guess that makes sense... (including the whole eggs ****). But does this mean I should also start eating even when I'm not really that hungry? Cause regarding how much I normally eat, its on average like 1600-1900 calories sadly enough, and thats prolly why I haven't gotten much bigger all this time... So is it now a case of just force feeding myself?

    Uhhh, yep. As a matter of fact, that's the eating mantra for getting big in every single legit bodybuilding/sports book and website that is out there.

    Also, read the stickies.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Of course it's the feed, what else would it be? good chi from organic farmers?!

    It excludes both "organic" and "free-range", because neither of those are required to feed chickens in a way such that they lay eggs with increased levels of omega-3s.

    That is, it's not because their feed is organic, nor is it because of the extra space they're granted.
