This is what some may understand by the term “free-range” animal breeding. It almost makes me throw the egg at someone. It seems monstrous, not so much for the hens (as they wouldn’t know the difference between close proximity and stepping on each other’s.. well, claws), but for us, humans, who are so playing with the laws of nature as a child in possession of a pistol. I always like to quote the mathematician from Jurassic Park (the original one, of course) when criticizing the way scientists were denying female genes to IV reproduction, he said: Nature always finds a way. I just don’t want to be around when it does.
