VEGA comments on a DEFRA consultation on Eggs and Chicks


Re: Consultation on Eggs and Chicks (England) Regulations 2007


We think that all commercially-produced eggs should be sold with a welfare warning based on the 5 Freedoms, thus production of these eggs entails cruelty to the birds. We see good grounds for extending the warning to eggs from other birds, e.g. quails, ducks etc.
