Colorado governor signs cage-free egg bill into law

Colorado became the sixth state to require that all eggs sold in the state be from cage-free hens in a bill signed Wednesday by Colorado Gov. Jared Polis. The bill requires all egg-laying hens to have at least 1 sq. ft. of space by Jan. 1, 2023, and to be in cage-free housing by Jan. 1, 2025.
