The Czech Republic follows neighbouring Austria and Germany in a move towards more humane conditions for the farming of chickens. An amendment to the animal welfare law has been approved by the Czech Senate. The new law will ban the cage-farming of chickens from 2027. Agriculture Minister Miroslav Toman had argued that such a ban should first be passed by the EU.
