Consultation on a proposal to phase out the use of cages in Scotland’s laying hen sector

Tuesday 25 June

The Scottish Government is seeking your views on a proposal to ban enriched cage production entirely, including the few (barren) battery cages which remain in use for laying hen units with fewer than 350 birds, pullets and breeder layers.

The policy proposal aims to improve animal welfare standards in a way which is also sustainable and economically viable for the Scottish egg industry.
