Ninety-five percent of egg-laying hens spend their entire short, miserable lives crammed into tiny cages with as many as ten hens per cage. Battery cages are stacked on top of one another and are packed into windowless sheds with thousands of hens

Signed. "Cage-free" isn't always better- 10,000 chickens may be crammed into huge quonset huts, with 2 feet of manure under the floor- so not a lot better than a battery cage. Pasture raised eggs would be the least cruel as far as chicken husbandry goes... Remember, all the boy chicks were killed by being dropped into a shredder as soon as they were hatched, and the hens are sent to slaughter as soon as they don't lay enough eggs, so thee isn't any kind of 100 % cruelty free egg (unless you adopt a hen who happens to lay eggs!)

I don't live in the States and purchase organic eggs from places where the chickens spend the entire day running around where they please. The hens are not killed when they stop laying in all cases. One can often visit the very small farm where the chickens are raised and there are no Quonset huts. Also, in small operations male chicks (roosters) are sold or given to friends.
