Starting January 1, Colorado Egg Producers Will Begin Transitioning to Cage-Free Hen Housing
Soon all eggs sold at Colorado grocery stores will be from cage-free hens. The Colorado general assembly passed HB20-1343 to advance animal welfare by requiring Colorado’s egg-laying hens to be housed in a cage free environment. Additionally, the act also prohibits business owners from selling or transporting for sale in Colorado egg products that are not from a cage-free farm.
This year’s World Egg Day celebrates the brilliant versatility of the egg and its vast variety of benefits to people at every age and stage of life.

The power of this perfect package is unbeatable! Improving brain function, supporting physical strength, aiding child growth – the egg can do it all!
