Choose Cage Free, Eggs, birds,

bump. Is this any way to live a life!! One small step you can take to improve the lives of millions of hens is to only purchase eggs from hens that are provided some semblance of a life.  Each time you buy “cheep”  eggs..you support battery cages and keeping hens in prison. You purchase a miserable life for  hen who has provided a dozen eggs for you if you buy normal “cheep” eggs. I prefer to purchase organic as overall it supports best agricultural and humane practices. (In Canada) Everywhere you purchase eggs, including restaurants, baked good, etc.. ask if the eggs come from cage free hens. Yep it cost a bit more..but not nearly the price that a hen pays. I pay just over $7.00/doz (CD) for organic eggs. about 60 cents an egg is still extremely inexpensive protein.

Do It..!! do not settle for a compromise. Give a hen a better life…. you can!

Battery Cages

The vast majority of egg-laying hens in the United States are confined in battery cages. On average, each caged laying hen is afforded only 67 square inches of cage space—less space than a single sheet of letter-sized paper on which to live her entire life. Unable even to spread their wings, caged laying hens are among the most intensively confined animals in agribusiness.

Caged hens also suffer from the denial of many natural behaviors such as nesting, perching, and dustbathing, all important for hen welfare. Numerous scientists and other experts [PDF] have spoken clearly about the animal welfare problems with battery cages. One such scientist, Nobel Prize winner Dr. Konrad Lorenz, said:

The worst torture to which a battery hen is exposed is the inability to retire somewhere for the laying act. For the person who knows something about animals it is truly heart-rending to watch how a chicken tries again and again to crawl beneath her fellow cagemates to search there in vain for cover.
