California goes cage-free (go Arnie!) [General]

2010 Jul 8


Some big news hit the hen house on Tuesday. California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed bill A.B. 1437 into law, which states that all whole eggs must come from birds that can "fully extend their limbs, lie down and spread their wings without touching each other or the sides of their enclosure," as the Humane Society of the United States describes it. In other words, when the law goes into full effect in 2015, the Golden State will be effectively cage free.
