Man o man, I sure do hate the taste of an egg that came out of a chicken with no elbow room
More proof of why Cali is bankrupt. Don't they have more important things to do? Thoughts?
The bill, A.B. 1437, requires that all whole eggs sold in California as of Jan. 1, 2015, come from hens able to stand up, fully extend their limbs, lie down and spread their wings without touching each other or the sides of their enclosure, thus requiring cage-free conditions for the birds.
"By signing this bill, Governor Schwarzenegger has taken an important step in protecting animal welfare in a way that will also improve food safety for consumers across California," said Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The HSUS. "Californians have made it clear that they don't want unsafe eggs from hens crammed into cages, and we applaud the Legislature and governor for heeding this call."

As I sit here eating my omelette, I'm afraid I am unaware whether the jumbo eggs I used to make my breakfast were from "cramped" hens or the "run free and prosper" variety!! LOL They're tasty either way! :o)

I do think there are more important things to do.
I am all for SAFER foods...and that includes LESS HORMONES and CHEMICALS PUMPED INTO THE ANIMALS....When you have these places that jam themn into one place, so you think they are taking that into consideration? Nope, they are PUMPING them hens full of SHIT to make more and BIGGER eggs
