The latest Government decision on ‘free range’ chickens allowing producers to brand eggs as ‘free range’ when the density is 10 000 chickens per hectare is still a cruel way to egg production.
In Europe the Union only allows the branding of eggs as ‘free range’ when the density of chickens per hectare of land is maximum of 2500 chickens, giving the chooks 4 sq. metres each, instead of in Australia just 1 sq. metre.
Some years ago I wrote about the plight of chickens. I thought of giving the article again.
