  The Issue

Egg labelling: On March 31st, State and Federal Consumer Affairs Ministers met to decide on how our eggs are labelled.

Thank you to the thousands of Australians that took action to contact their state or territory Consumer Affairs Minister to demand free-range means good welfare for hens. A decision has been made by the Ministers, however the RSPCA is calling for the standard to be more prescriptive, in the interests of animal welfare. Stay tuned for more information.

 
 

 

Space to roam

Free range means 1500-2500 birds have a hectare to roam.

Dust bathing

Hens have litter for foraging and dust bathing.

Perches for roosting

Perching is a key natural behaviour for hens.

Shaded areas

These areas help protect hens from the sun.
