Dr. Berg discusses a little know secret about so called "free-range" chickens.

Eggs can be the one of the healthiest things you can eat IF you get them from the right place. Factory farmed eggs may claim to allow their chickens to roam around outside, yet in reality they're stuck in the barn and rarely go outside because there only a few small doors are available in a massive large barn, not to mention the food stays inside, so there is no reason to go outside.

When eggs claim to be "hormone-free", they are because ALL eggs are hormone free - this is just a marketing gimmick. Since 1949, a law was passed to make all eggs hormone-free - it's illegal to add hormones.
But if you can buy get your eggs from the farmers market, you'll be okay and get a high quality nutrition product. I would also recommend consuming the WHOLE egg, especially the yolk. The yolk is where most of the nutrition is and if you are trying to keep your cholesterol in a good range, realize that the antidote to cholesterol is lecithin, which is present in the yolk, not the white.
I have been consuming eggs (4/day) for the past 20+ years. So don't buy in to the marketing tactics of large factory farms!
