Organic eggs are laid by hens who can freely choose to go outside in a chicken farm - all year round. The chicken farm must be covered with grass or other vegetation, and there must be both shelter and planting in the form of trees and shrubs.
Inside the henhouse, at least a third should be covered with sand, straw, planer shingles or peat, so the hens can scrape with their feet and stay clean with a bath of dust. It is also a requirement that the hens have access to perches and nests. The barn must have natural daylight.
The organic chickens get state-controlled organic feed. It is a requirement that the hens have access to forage every day, e.g. grass, carrots and beets.
