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 – all responses are welcome but the welfare standards discussed are for UK laying hens specifically. There are no right or wrong answers – I 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!
