This tour takes you through a cage-free, free-range egg laying barn. You’ll meet Bryan, our farmer from Abbotsford, BC and see his barn, including the aviary-style hen housing. Aviary housing offers the hens multiple levels where they can perch, feed, lay their eggs and roost for the night.

This video takes you through an enriched egg laying barn. By the year 2036, enriched housing will have replaced all standard cage housing for laying hens throughout Canada. This housing system allows hens room for all their natural behaviours including perching, scratching, laying their eggs, eating and drinking, and produces the most economical eggs available on your grocery store shelves. In this video, you’ll meet Dan, our farmer from Abbotsford, BC, and see his entire farm, including how the hens are housed, fed and cared for.
Once eggs are collected by the farmer, they must be graded at a certified grading station. This video takes you inside an Island Eggs grading station to show you how eggs are cleaned and inspected before being packed and shipped to your local grocery store.

This summer, we asked kids from around the province for their questions about eggs, chickens, and egg farming in BC. Then we had our BC Egg Farmers answer them! Here are the results.
Do YOU have a question for one of our BC Egg Farmers? Ask us how you can send in your video, and we might feature you on our next installment of “Kids Ask an Egg Farmer!”
