I knew that so cage free poultry wasn't practiced as my grandfather did, with much larger populations and more crowding, but this ! Aagh!

‘They’re Being Eaten Alive!’ What I Saw In A Cage-Free Egg Farm

Cannibalism is the first dark secret of cage-free egg farming. One study showed rates of cannibalism increasing by 3000% on cage-free farms, and it’s a horrible way to die.

But cannibalism is just the tip of the iceberg. In everything from air quality to bone fractures, hens often do much worse under cage-free. Three times as many hens die prematurely.

The basic problem for the hens is this: cage-free farms, like caged farms, squeeze birds into a space about the size of a piece of printer paper. Imagine living your entire life in a small shower. Now imagine living your entire life in the same amount of space, but with thousands of insane strangers crowding around you.

Anyone want to bet that factory farms discovered this LONG ago and that's why the cages went into place?
