What Does 'Free Range' Mean

As a result of the Australian Egg Corporation Ltd's decision to try to introduce new standards for 'free range' egg production, we have set up a petition at

If you know anyone who thinks that free range hens should not be de-beaked (or beak trimmed), that a stocking density of 20,000 hens per hectare is ridiculous, and that free range hens should not be locked in sheds until they are 25 weeks old - please ask them to sign the petition.
We will send it to the Australian Egg Corporation and to the Federal Minister for Agriculture, the Hon Tony Burke.
