If a robin redbreast in a cage

The Green Party is challenging egg producers using battery cages to open up their operations to public scrutiny and allow journalists to visit their factory farms.

Green Animal Welfare Spokesperson Sue Kedgley will be a guest speaker at the SPCA campaign launch tomorrow against the use of battery farming in New Zealand.

"It is time to lift the veil of secrecy that surrounds factory farms in New Zealand and open them up to the media and members of the public," she said.
