Tesco stop selling eggs from cage hens!

Tesco are one of the few UK supermarkets left to sell eggs from caged birds.

While enriched cages provide more space than battery cages and can allow hens to express more of their natural behaviours, such as perching, dustbathing, and nesting, they are still very restrictive. Hens cannot fly up to a high perch to be safe from feather pecking, the litter area is often very limited, and effective dust bathing generally is not possible.


Cage hens live in cramped, stressful conditions. Many make chicks are killed in the process when selecting laying birds.

Animals deserve freedom, make Tesco sell only free range eggs!
