It takes about 24-26 hours of labor inside the chicken just to form the shell and the white of the egg. The chicken is born with the beginning of all the yolks for the eggs she will lay in her life already inside her.
It takes about 4-5 hours of human labor to collect the eggs when chickens are in true pasture-raised, free range farms like Hilltops Free Range. It then takes about 2-3 more hours to process, grade and pack the eggs.
