IT’S ABOUT THE HENS, NOT EGGS

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

RE­GARD­ING Frank Granger’s let­ter “Shell game” (Gazette, Au­gust 8), the fuss is not about free range eggs, it's about the lives of the chick­ens.

Have you ever seen bat­tery hens? It's hor­ri­fy­ing.

I have in the past adopted some to give them a chance to see the sun and dirt in the last few piti­ful months of their lives.

The way we have bred and treated chick­ens is ab­hor­rent. They are clever, sweet crea­tures.

Ev­ery time we buy eggs, we de­cide if these hor­ri­ble prac­tices will con­tinue. TALK WITH YOUR COM­MU­NITY
