Cage-free eggs are laid by hens allowed to roam and engage in natural behaviors. The "cage-free" label differentiates the eggs from those laid by farmed chickens that spend most of their reproductive lives in cages. Cage-free hens are not kept in cages, but they are most often confined to the barn in which they are housed. The cage-free label does require their caregivers to provide them with access to outdoor space.
