Description: Battery hens in a coop . The practice of battery poultry farming involves rearing chickens intensively in an enclosed space to maximize the profits . The feed can be designed to improve egg quality , and the light cycles can be adjusted to simulate spring and so increase egg laying . It is thought that this has nearly tripled the rate of egg laying , but it has also reduced a hens life expectancy . Photographed in Israel .
