Young hens included in EUs 2027 caged animal farming ban
The “End the Cage Age” movement by the European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) and the support of 1.4 million citizens led to the decision.
On June 30th 2021, The European Commission stated that legislation would be proposed in 2023 to phase out the practice of caging farm animals by 2027. The EU Parliament and the EU’s 27 governments must agree to the proposal. Individual countries would be responsible for enforcing the rule.
