On my way to Denver. Checking out the local paper found this relevant story with some great pics of chicks. This is a nice story about how cage free eggs are produced. Approximately 20,000 chickens will live in a barn that’s 330 feet long. They can move about, from roost to nest box, to dust bathing area on the ground level. So it’s definitely a lot nicer for the birds than the battery system. Check out this neat photo. First it’s a really beautiful shot, and second–it’s like 20,000 Edwina’s! Love those birds going up and down the ramps and coming out of the nest boxes. Looks pretty treacherous–I imagine a lot of heads get pooped on in this system, but at least they can move.
