Organic Egg Farms May Not Be as Clean as You Think
excerpt from above:
Quote:
The report, titled "Scrambled Eggs," found that many organic producers were keeping their chickens in very similar conditions as conventional producers -- with sometimes as many as a million birds crammed into tiny cages across vast coops. They found these pictures: a far cry from the green fields that many people think of when they think "organic."

There is a lot of leeway in what will allow a producer to become certified organic, and some smaller farmers are frustrated that they are classified in the same category as million-chicken operations...
