Egg Production

Our WorkPhotos A-ZFactory Farming – Egg Production 

Egg-laying hens are commonly kept in small cages known as battery cages. These cages are one of the most restrictive intensive confinement systems used in modern farming, giving birds so little space that they cannot even stretch their wings. Layer hens routinely have parts of their beaks cut off to avoid injuring other birds, but injury and death are still common in these systems. At one or two years of age, these birds are considered “spent” and are sent to slaughter, often suffering brutal injuries as they are removed from their cages and transported.
