    thanks for this. when I was at uni I did a speech on battery hens that forever changed me…the cruel way this hens live horrified me and still does. Sadly in NZ there are so many of them. Our egg producers had too much clout with the government and change is very slow in coming

      I have my doubts that change will ever occur. Sad but probably true. Few of us really see where are food comes from. Everything we eat is all nicely packaged in a grocery store… what we don’t think about it how it got there. All I know is it’s an ugly story I’m guilty of ignoring when I buy our dinner. 😦

        The way our food is raised and prepared is responsible for my going vegetarian. While I do still eat eggs they are free range only. I just can’t be part of the cruelty now I have seen it.
