Caged hens also suffer from the denial of many natural behaviors such as nesting, perching, and dustbathing, all important for hen welfare. Numerous scientists and other experts have spoken clearly about the animal welfare problems with battery cages. One such scientist, Nobel Prize winner Dr. Konrad Lorenz, said:

"The worst torture to which a battery hen is exposed is the inability to retire somewhere for the laying act. For the person who knows something about animals it is truly heart-rending to watch how a chicken tries again and again to crawl beneath her fellow cagemates to search there in vain for cover."

Unlike battery hens, cage-free hens are able to walk, spread their wings and lay their eggs in nests, vital natural behaviors denied to hens confined in cages. Most cage-free hens live in very large flocks that can consist of many thousands of hens who never go outside. The vast majority of cage-free hens live on farms that are 3rd-party audited by certification programs that mandate perching and dust-bathing areas. These advantages are very significant to the animals involved.

"Battery cages present inherent animal welfare problems, most notably by their small size and barren conditions. Hens are unable to engage in many of their natural behaviors and endure high levels of stress and frustration. Cage-free egg production, while not perfect, does not entail such inherent animal welfare disadvantages and is a very good step in the right direction for the egg industry."

Cage-free hens are spared several severe cruelties that are inherent to battery cage systems. But it would nevertheless be a mistake to consider cage-free facilities to necessarily be "cruelty-free." Here are some of the more typical sources of animal suffering associated with both types of egg production:

So, while cage-free does not necessarily mean cruelty-free, cage-free hens generally have significantly better lives than those confined in battery cages. The ability to lay their eggs in nests, run and spread their wings are tangible benefits that shouldn't be underestimated.

In its response to the ECI, the Commission commits to table, by the end of 2023, a legislative proposal to phase out, and finally prohibit, the use of cage systems for all animals mentioned in the Initiative.

1. Helmets must be worn by batters under 16 years old while inside cages. 2. One batter per cage at a time. No coaching allowed from inside cages. 3. Do not switch hit. 4. Closed toe shoes must be worn inside cages. Open toed shoes and bare feet are not allowed. 5. Do not stand on home plate. 6. Do not use cages under the influence of drugs or alcohol. 7. Report any faulty machines to the attendant. 8. Stay alert at all times while in cages and watch for rolling balls under feet. 9. Do not pass the DO NOT CROSS line.

10. No one under the age of 6 is permitted to use batting cages. 11. No one under the age of 16 is permitted to use the very fast batting cages. 12. Batters under the age of 10 must be supervised by an adult.

Private Cages allocate approximately 20 feet2 (2 meters2) per cabinet position. Some cages have hard walls, but most cage walls are made of a steel, 2-inch (50 mm) metal mesh with a wire diameter of 0.15 inch (3.75 mm).

Every cabinet installed in a private cage has a Cabinet Rating equal to the maximum power draw allowable in the cabinet (per the Global IBX Policies). The rating is also an indication of the cooling resources necessary to support the cabinet.

A Cabinet Equivalent, or CabE, is a unit of measure equal to the total cage space needed to support one standard Equinix cabinet (and its associated hot and cold aisle space). For example, a 10 CabE cage is a space built to support 10 standard Equinix cabinets. In some cases, the size of the cage (in CabE) may not equal the number of cabinets installed; for example, a 10 CabE cage might be needed to hold 8 extra-wide cabinets.

The Average CabE Rating is used to determine the overall power density of a cage. The Average CabE Rating is equal to the quotient of the draw cap (in kVA) divided by the size of the Private Cage (in CabE).

On 30 June 2021, the Commission decided to positively respond to the ECI. In its communication, the Commission sets out plans for a legislative proposal to prohibit cages for a number of farm animals. The proposal will come as part of the ongoing revision of the animal welfare legislation under the the Farm to Fork Strategy.

For these animals, the Commission has already asked EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) to complement the existing scientific evidence to determine the conditions needed for the prohibition of the use of cages. The legislative proposal, which will include a proposal for the date of entry into force of the prohibition, is foreseen for the end of 2023 and will be part of the planned revision of EU animal welfare legislation.

Pike determines that any strong emotions keep the Talosians from controlling his mind and uses this to his advantage. While Pike feigns sleep, the Talosian magistrate tries to recover the female officers' lasers from the cage. Pike seizes the magistrate and ignores the illusions. He reasons that the malfunction of the lasers was itself an illusion and uses the laser pistol to compel the magistrate to stop deceiving him. He now sees that they had blasted away the wall of the cage on their first attempt. 041b061a72
