Propostion 2 Passes in California! Eggology Practices Humane Treatment of Animals

Eggology is so proud that animal rights have prevailed in California. Proposition 2 was created by Californians for Humane Farms. They believe that it is cruel and inhumane to confine animals in cages so small that they can't turn around or stretch their limbs. Now that Prop 2 has passed, what can we expect? No more cruelty to animals. An improvement in our health and food safety. New opportunities for family farmers, less opportunity for factory farms. All positive results.

Eggology is proud to say that we were the first and still the only egg whites to be "certified humane" as we have made it a priority to promote animal welfare. Receiving the prestigious "Certified Humane" designation affirms that Eggology meets the Humane Farm Animal Care's stringent Animal Care Standard. What does this mean? This means that:
  • Hens live and move freely in large community open-air hen houses
  • No cages - hens have unlimited access to feed, water, and dirt for bathing
  • Hens are fed a 100% certified organic diet comprised mainly of organic corn, organic alfalfa, organic soy, organic salt & limestone
  • Hens that become injured for any reason receive immediate attention from an onsite poultry specialist to determine if the injury requires isolation for healing, or that the severity of injury will incur undo suffering in which case the hen is humanely euthanized
  • Hens who die are cremated on the ranch to prevent any potential for disease
  • Hens are not de-beaked

Remember happy chickens equal healthy eggs!
