Student Survey: Public perceptions of welfare standards for egg laying hens in UK


As part of a student survey for a final year research project at the Royal Veterinary College, London, I am interested in public perception of welfare standards for egg laying hens (layers) in the UK, to see whether public expectations are being met with respect to the current welfare standards.

I would be extremely grateful if you could take some time to complete this survey, which should take around 10-15 minutes. Please note that you do not need to be residing in UK to participate in this survey Рall responses are welcome but the welfare standards discussed are for UK laying hens specifically. There are no right or wrong answers РI am just interested in your views.

The survey can be accessed here:

Thank you so much in advance and I hope you find this interesting!
