Feel confident, happy, and healthy knowing you’re feeding your family the healthiest eggs!
Baker Bayou hens are 100% pasture raised, free to forage for native wild edibles and yummy bugs on our biodiverse Louisiana pastures.
All the nutrients the hens naturally absorb are passed along to you in the form of our truly pastured eggs.
Eggs from pastured hens are more nutritious than the conventional eggs you might find at the supermarket.
They are higher in vitamin A, E, and omega-3s, as well as lower in cholesterol and saturated fat.
All that nutrition can be seen with your own eyes in the beautiful orange yolks of our eggs!
We practice regenerative agriculture, humane treatment of animals, and focus on optimizing soil health.
We focus on offering the hens a diverse diet of bugs and legumes and move them frequently to ensure they are always on fresh ground.
They love eating clovers and the softer, more tender grasses.
Our chicken operation is designed around being able to move the chickens frequently to ensure they have lots of bugs to eat and fresh grasses to eat.
The hens also have free access to GMO-Free feed containing wheat, barley, peanut meal, and minerals. This feed is locally sourced in Alabama.

Together we are climate activists helping to heal the planet through the food we eat!
Baker Bayou eggs are “appropriately washed.”
That means we only very lightly wash the ones that need it.
The bloom is very delicate and because we do wash our eggs we cannot guarantee the bloom is intact.
Our eggs are washed and therefore need to be refrigerated.
Our eggs are no more than a week from the time they are laid to the time the customer receives them.
When stored correctly chickens eggs can last a very long time!
If you have lost track of how long your eggs have been in the refrigerator, do an egg freshness test:
Fll a medium-sized bowl with water, place the egg in the water, and see if it sinks or floats.
Why? You ask.
Freshly laid eggs do not have an air bubble inside. As the egg cools, a bubble forms between the inner membrane and the shell, usually on the wide end of the egg.
Eggshells are porous, and over time, the yolk absorbs liquid from the albumen and moisture and gas escape through the pores in the shell. This causes the air bubble to grow, and the air bubble is what makes an old egg float.
