Coming Egg Shortage Will Tax Family Budgets

If eggs are a staple in your family’s diet and you’d like to keep it that way, now would be a good time to get a few laying hens. Next month, beginning January 1, 2015, the chicken-and-egg production in the United States is in for a big shock. That’s when California’s new regulations on egg-laying hens goes into effect. And the effects of those regs on eggs will be felt nationally, even globally. The incredible, edible, prolate spheroid-shaped poultry product, which has long been one of the most affordable sources of high-quality protein, is certain to become significantly more expensive.

In 2008, the Humane Society of the United States spent $10 million on a statewide campaign in California to pass Proposition 2, which bans the sale of eggs from hens kept in restrictive “battery cages” that are lined row-on-row in major hatcheries. Battery cage systems, which are the standard in the industry, ...

Leave it to California to mess up something else.

Other states are going to have to pick up the pace.

It's a good time to start an egg company.

if they make animal abuse illegal and separately to continue banning the ability of people to have hens on their properties, then what they've essentially done is resurrected the old Soviet model of starving their own people in the midst of a prosperous land.

hopefully regulations can be lifted for free market, that is freedom of association, there are excellent ways, just as the WWII generation did (it was considered patriotic to have chickens and a garden) to have a home supply of eggs to share with the neighbors.

overall, its a good move to ban abuse of animals. besides the abuse of our call to be stewards of the land, imagine a sickly animal, not fed right and kept from the light, and all that the outside provides, their food is denatured and unhealthy.

free range chickens are quite possible on small farms, and can be beneficial to the soil, Farmer Salatin does much teaching on this and is a Christian, its better for the animals and better for the people.

I agree wirh you, John. Animals are animals but are living creatures that should never be mistreated and treated humanly. I hear so many storys about animal cruelty and I think it takes a special breed of person to abuse helpless children and animals. There was a story on last night about a beautiful rescue horse that almost died from the abuse of its owner. Mankind sure can be cruel.

If I had some space I would love to keep some chickens, as they are really lovely creatures. Baby chickens reared at home are such cuties, and become very tame.

The so-called battery hen commercial way of production I think is ungodly, cruel and inhumane.
