We must use free range eggs for pancakes

Published 05/02/2010

This Pancake Day (February 16), tens of thousands of eggs will be used to create pancakes across Northern Ireland.

We all love pancakes, but it's important to remember that if you use eggs in your pancakes that are from caged hens, you will have contributed to a life of misery for these helpless animals.

The hens' natural behaviour is severely restricted in the tiny cages. Ultimately, they are forced to be egg-making machines in intolerable conditions for their entire lives. The good news is you'll only have to 'shell' out a few more pence for happy free-range pancakes.
