Consider the Hens...

BATTERY HEN CAGED EGGS
  
Many people are unaware that the family farms shown on TV are largely a thing of the past.  Most “farms” are huge factories that treat animals as things.  Pigs, chickens, and veal calves are so over confined they cannot move forward or back or even turn around. Battery cage chickens have a space of 67 square inches, less than a school notebook page, for their entire lives.  They are de-beaked with a hot iron, stand on slanted wire that deforms their feet, and cannot even spread their wings. Feathers are dirty and matted, and many lose most feathers. The cages are stacked 3 and 4 rows high in barns having no natural light.  Chickens in the top row defecate on the heads of all the chickens below them. Mites and lice are rampant.  These unsanitary conditions require the heavy use of antibiotics; a chief reason antibiotics prescribed for human sickness no longer work.  With hundreds of thousands per building, these factory farm battery hens never touch the ground, spread their wings, or see outside light. With no private nesting box for egg-laying, it often takes hours in discomfort to produce their one egg per day. After a year, they quit laying eggs. Corporate owners starve them for 15 days (about 5% die), to get them to molt which begins the inhumane process again for a second year. Then all are killed. The Humane Society of U.S. lists Hens in Battery Cages as one of the six worst animals offenses in the U.S.:  www.hsus.org/farm/camp/nbe/.  Egg Carton info:

More info on Battery Cage Hens is also at Humane Farming Association and Farm Sanctuary websites. 
JERRY'S CAGE-FREE EGGS
 

Contrast the unnatural and cruel Battery Cage conditions above with those of Tennessee Valley Eggs, a CAGE FREE egg farm run by local, first generation family farmers Jerry and Jana Swafford of Englewood, TN.  Most cage-free egg producers give each bird approx. 1 square foot.  Jerry provides 4 square feet per bird, giving plenty of space for walking and moving.  At night all the birds crowd to one end of the house and cuddle. During the day chickens roam freely, fly to their nesting boxes and even swing on the water dispensing lines.  The chickens are healthy and large, with their beaks, feathers and feet in perfect condition.  Happy, natural clucking sounds are heard, sunlight streaming in from windows.  With nesting boxes all around the outside walls, pictured above, one of Jerry's hens happily ensconced in her nesting box Pictured at left,  a second hen having just laid her egg, proudly stands on the perch, CROWING loudly. According to Jerry, most of his hens crow proudly to tell the other hens they've laid their egg!  The brown eggs produced are large with thick shells. People in this area should be proud to have these incredibly edible and healthy eggs from local hens who are treated humanely. When you go to your grocer, buy Tennessee Valley Eggs. Martha Stewart and most cooking show hosts prize brown cage-free eggs for health and "humane" animal treatment.  Look on the box before you buy.  If the words “Cage Free” or “Free Roaming” aren’t on the box, then the chickens are in battery cages, even if the box says “Omega vitamins” or anything else.  Support humane farming and local farmers!
