Humane Society International applauds Bhutan Government's landmark farm animal welfare measure.

Bhutan. Animal protection organisation Humane Society International praised the Royal Government of Bhutan for instituting major animal welfare reforms for the country’s egg industry.

The Minister of Agriculture and Forests, Royal Government of Bhutan, declared that any female domesticated chicken, turkey, duck, goose, or guinea fowl kept for the purpose of egg production, including pullets, shall never be continually confined in restrictive cages that prevent them from fully stretching their limbs or expressing important natural behaviors. The order also mandates that birds shall have sufficient space to be able to perch or sit quietly without repeated disturbance.

Typically, egg factory farms around the world cram egg-laying hens into barren cages so small the birds can't even spread their wings.
