CAGE-FREE HENS/EGGS

 

Cage-Free chickens are raised in a stress-free environment and are not in cages. They are kept in large heated and air-cooled growing houses where they can roost and socialize freely, participating in their chicken behaviors and pecking orders, and laying their eggs in dark, quiet nests.

            

Hens are required to have at least 1.2 square feet per bird floor space in the henhouse.  Their eggs are gathered straight from the nest, placed in a cooler, and then processed.

            

Because cage-free hens are allowed to roam free in the hen house, cage-free production is more labor-intensive and land-intensive which accounts for the higher price of eggs from cage-free hens.
