Eggs

The production of eggs in conventional production occurs mainly in two ways; either by laying hens that live in furnished cages or by laying hens that live in free-range systems. The research, as assessed by the National Veterinary Institute, has shown that both furnished cages, where hens are kept in smaller groups, and free-range systems, where the hens live in very large groups, satisfy established functional requirements and animal welfare regulations stipulating that animals should be treated well and protected from unnecessary suffering and disease.
