Chickens in Italy, Greece living 'outside the law' says EU

Brussels, April 25 - The chickens have come home to
roost for Italy and Greece, now facing charges in the European
Court of Justice over the size of hen houses.
The two countries are in trouble for failing to enforce
requirements for the minimum size of cages where laying hens are
bred.
The pair had been given 12 years to meet new standards and
authorities say that allowing some breeders to get away without
upgrading penalizes those producers who have invested in new
facilities.
European animal welfare laws, effective last year, say that
all laying hens must have spacious cages in which to nest,
scratch, and roost.
Not only are the hens at risk but their eggs are then seen
as being laid "outside the law".
