The Queensland government has stealthily scrambled its own free-range standard by increasing stocking densities to 10,000 birds per hectare

Until recently, regulations in Queensland said that stocking densities for 'free-range' eggs must not be more than 1,500 birds per hectare. That means they have increased densities by 667%! 

Consumers who choose to buy free-range eggs should be able to do so with confidence. Currently the Model Code has a maximum of 1,500 birds per hectare. This Code is now undergoing a review, however the decision by Queensland undermines these efforts. 

Send your email to the Queensland government and let them know that 10,000 birds per hectare is not free-range!
