I did the math 60 chickens in a 12X4 foot cage. Picture that crowd!!!works out less to be than a foot per hen. sounds so dirty! gross eggs!

It may sound dirty and crowded to you, susan, but enriched colony housing provides a ton more room than current production facilities (as much as three times the space), and produces cleaner eggs than both older "battery cage" and modern "free range" systems.

I'm sure the free-range-or-nothing activists would love nothing more than for you to think the enriched colony housing is only marginally bigger and cleaner than the current battery cage systems, but it just ain't so.
