Large numbers of animals confined in small spaces also pollute the air, water and soil with the vast amounts of manure they produce.The definitions of “free-range” are such that the commercial egg industry can run industrial farm egg laying facilities and still call them “free-range” eggs, despite the fact that the birds’ foraging conditions are far from what you’d call natural.
