Earlier this week, animal rights activists filed an initiative that would ensure laying hens live cage-free.
Spearheaded by the Humane Society of United States, the initiative would require space to roam for farm chicken by 2022. Currently, about two-thirds of egg producing hens are confined in some form of cages in California. This initiative, if passed, could mean more costly eggs for consumers, opposition argues.
Host Larry Mantle sits down with Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of Human Society of United States, and Kenneth Klippen, National Association of Egg Farmer, on the future of egg production.
