  • ​Hens are sometimes kept in small, overcrowded cages. The conditions in these cages would be like four people living in an elevator. “Cage-free” and “free-run” eggs come from hens that are kept indoors but have space to move around inside barns. “Free-range” eggs come from hens that may spend time outside. 
  • There is no certification process in place to confirm that eggs are “cage-free”, “free-range” or “free-run”, which means no one is checking farms to make sure these terms accurately reflect the living situation of the hens.
  • To be labelled “organic”, eggs need to come from certified farms that are inspected to make sure they meet animal welfare standards. These standards include having enough space to flap and access to the outdoors. The hens are also antibiotic-free and raised on organic feed.
