New York Times Supports Bill to Ban Battery Cages

Great editorial on the New York Times supporting a more humane system of raising egg laying hens! The article explains clearly how egg laying hens are crammed in battery cages and applauds the introduction of the new bill that would require labeling on all egg cartons to specify whether the eggs are from caged, cage-free or free-range hens. This bill would phase in over the next 15 years to 18 years requirements for larger cages (nearly doubling the space each chicken is provided), perches, scratching areas and nesting boxes.

To read the article please visit More humane egg production:

Any improvement of our current system of raising egg-laying hens is definitely welcome. Although as stewards of God’s animals we would like to see no exploitation at all of these lovely creatures, we also acknowledge that the reduction of suffering to any extent is beneficial while we tirelessly work toward a more compassionate, harmonious and peaceful world.

Your question and comments are welcome
