No, they have stopped selling 'Eggs from Caged Hens'...it's all a question of perception.

Barn eggs are from chickens kept in barns but they have the ability to move around freely and do all the things that chickens would do naturaly, so you can have a good conscience when buying them as oppossed to ones from caged hens, obviously free range are even better as the chickens have outside space but the cost goes up as well.

not quite. barn chickens are still limited in the amount of space they have. I believe it is 17 chickens per square metre so i doubt they can do the things that come naturally, except faeceate and copulate ;-)

Really? Isn't morality an entirely subjective concept, unique to each person?

Actually its 9 per m2 or if the units were in production before 1999 they can have 12 m2 but only until 2011 then it changes to 9 m2. Either way its a lot better than a cage where they can't move around at all.

The lady who runs the battery hen welfare trust which aims to give ex-battery hens a life after they have slowed down in their egg output was on BBC1's the one show about 12 months ago and she says that people dont realise that barn eggs are a good thing that people think that eggs from hens kept in barns are the same as those cheap eggs from battery hens and that barn eggs have been given a bad name but she says purchasing barn eggs is way preferable to buying ones from battery hens.

How often do they have to change the batteries in battery hens to keep them laying ??????

Well they change the hens once every eighteen months as the egg production starts to drop off at that age. They use the slaughtered hens for animal food or food flavouring but the hens are so knackered they are not even good enough for McDs !

even at 9 per m2, I still wouldnt say they can move freely. works out at a square 33cm x 33cm per chicken. Isnt that about the size of a chicken anyway when standing up.

I read recently that they were trying to get people to stop buying very large eggs as medium eggs were better and less of a strain for the hens.

are you serious lol?

surely eggs come out when they are ready and size is pot luck,
#18
No I'm serious that's what I read.

It's harder for them to lay large eggs.

Hi, sorry if I offended you. I was just joking with the word "eggs" (that's why I added the wink). Still voted your post hot :), and still can't find them, ended up getting the £2.50 instore instead.

Might just be regional thing.
