This is covertly filmed footage taken by animal activists at Mainland Poultry's main operation north of Dunedin. Tens of thousands of hens are cramped inside a new type of battery cage, called a 'colony cage'. These new cages are touted by the egg industry as an alternative to conventional battery cages and gained the approval of the Minister for Primary Industries, David Carter in December 2012.
