Week 2 - How a Caged Hen Feels

Did you know that millions of hens still live in cages in the UK? We have been living under lockdown for a few months now and a lot of us have found it really tough. Hens that live in cages never get to go outside, or even leave their cages. Some will never even see the sunshine, so how do you think they feel? Find out more about egg production methods in the UK and see if you can relate to how a caged hen feels.

We’d love to see examples our your work, so please send photos of you and your work to us through our send us a photograph page or by emailing our Education Officer at
