Beak Trimming Ban - We need your help. July 2, 2010 09:31
The UK ban on the beak-trimming of egg-laying hens is under threat. Please help us ensure that it is not abandoned. The welfare of millions of hens around the UK is at stake.There are around 26 million hens in the UK’s laying flock. The majority of these will have had part of their beaks cut off shortly after hatching. This mutilation is a painful and unnecessary solution to feather-pecking. It was due to be banned on 1 January 2011, but the Government will soon make a decision on a possible postponement.
