Cage Free Eggs
In this Feb. 22, 2013 photo, Greg Satrum, co-owner of Willamette Egg Farms in Canby, Ore. inspects the production line. Willamette Eggs, Oregon's biggest and oldest egg producer, is expanding its cage free hen houses that will hold 20,000 hens each. Nationally, cage-free production was 5.7 percent of the total as of March 2012, according to the American Egg Board. "I have to expect it will continue to grow," said Satrum, co-owner of the company with his father, Gordon, and the third generation to run the company. (AP Photo/The Oregonian, Ross William Hamilton)
