Your leading article refers to 'apparently cruel conditions' in cages. Quite right, they are only apparently cruel. It is the hens allowed to roam freely that need the chemicals and antibiotics to maintain health, not the caged hen, which has no access to its own manure. I know, having had them roaming in the past.
The public already complains of the unsightly free-range pig units: large free-range poultry units are worse.
