Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
More on chickens here.

The EU plants to totally phase out battery cages by 2012, but only to replace them with slightly larger cages. Like I said above ironically (with my extra 2cm2), even with an honorouble intention the EU is still far from target.

And anyhow the problem is mainly that meat demand is too high. Lower the demand, and there will be more space available for cattle and chickens and forests and what nots.
