24. Free range is bullshit and that's not how it looks on commercial farms.
Free range generally just means packing a jesusload of hens into a shed rather than into cages. The males are still killed immediately after hatching, the females are still debeaked painfully, usually fed the cheapest crap that keeps them alive (often including their ground up dead brothers and their own shit) and then killed as soon as their egg production falls slightly at a year or so.
