Choose cage-free eggs and give our feathered friends a better life
It’s in a hen’s nature to lay her eggs in a nest, perch, scratch and strut about — but cages don’t allow hens to do this. Choose cage-free eggs to promote the humane treatment and proper care of hens.
Why Choose Cage-Free?
- 95 percent of egg laying hens are crammed
into tiny barren cages
- With 6-8 hens per cage, each one lives on a space smaller than a sheet
of notebook paper
- Little room to turn around or stretch their wings causes
stress, frustration, and injuries.
- Cage-free farming means better hen health and welfare — and safer,
more wholesome eggs for you

importance of choosing cage-free eggs
These tailored conversation starters will help spark a productive dialogue with

A gift that keeps on giving:
by: Christen Shepherd, Cobble Hills Farm Sanctuary
A year in a battery cage takes its toll. When the hens arrive to be taken into our care at Cobble Hills Farm Sanctuary (located in St. Mary’s Ontario, southwest of Stratford) they are weak, afraid and almost featherless. Some are almost completely bald except for a few patches of feathers around their head and top of their legs.
