Q: Why did the pervert cross the road?
A: He couldn't get his dick out of the chicken.

So no cages and a square foot of coop per laying hen.  Next up:  Premade nests every foot with fighting over nests and pecking order establishment.

Wow, what a huge win.

I actually signed a petition to put this on the ballot because a really really cute girl asked me to.

She was so cute I voted for it months later.

/was pretty much in favor anyway

A similar bill passed here (in Cal) a few years ago. Prices for eggs skyrocketed soon after, then dropped back down to about what they were before. Which is good as eggs are a cheap protein. Probably still more expensive for a dozen eggs here than most other states, but most everything costs more here anyway.

Farmers adapt. Good for them and good for the critters.

I see lots of free-roaming chickens.  They are very dumb but mostly know enough to stay out of the road.

I think we should free a lot of our domestic chickens and let them go wild.  A lot of them would die, of course, but the ones that survived and bred could be hunted freely, like prairie dogs.  Or maybe there would be a season, depending on how many there are.

There's plenty for them to eat and all the gun nuts can go hunting for some delicious chicken.  You also have to clean it and take it home for food.

Wolf populations would rise, which can only be a good thing.

I think everyone know about the chicken who survived having its head cut off. It makes me wonder if it would be possible to breed egg laying chicken with very little brain, i.e. a lot less than what they have. They would not need legs or wings either.

Just insert a tube down they throats to feed them as they would not have the instinct or know how to do it themselves.

Genetic engineering would get us such chicken faster but "natural breeding" would remove the objections of the part of the population who objects to any modern way to get more food for the effort.

Another way to appease the free range crowd might be virtual reality for chicken, connect their brain to a vr machine that simulate them being in their ideal environment. The Matrix for food animals.

Not a fan of this legislation. As a consumer I can buy free range chicken eggs. If enough consumers were buying these eggs then all farms would be selling them. Instead we are forcing farmers to be uncompetitive with farmers in other states. Complying will increase the cost of eggs for all. Essentially this becomes a regressive tax on people who may share a different morality or viewpoint on the purpose of livestock than the propositions author.  This outcome is sofa king stupid.

I live a town north of Petaluma, California, and I don't know how some companies stay profitable. Petaluma is a or the egg capital. People at work even sell eggs to me. The darkest orange yolk I ever see. My haircut place sells eggs. The owner has chickens. Eggs eggs eggs. The chickens that roam free and are fed best and cleaned up daily truly produce the highest quality egg. Eggs some say you don't need to salt. But I salt it anyway. Eggs.

It's never about animal welfare, or the environment, or immigrants. It's about telling you how to live your life.
