Golden cages (Full laying hall) (from series)

Cage farming of layers is expected to be banned in the Czech Republic in 2027. The sole remaining farming option are the free range halls. I had the opportunity to witness it from the inside. Maintenance of halls is more expensive, dustiness is extreme, and the much-mentioned stress and mortality are higher than in cages, because for cca 5000 pieces per section, the hen cannot form close groups.
