Amsterdam's coffeeshops opt for happy hens
The famous Amsterdam coffeeshops in Holland are
turning to free-range eggs for their "spacecakes".
Coffeeshops in Holland are aiming to reduce the suffering of chickens by
turning to free-range chicken eggs used to make cake specialties, spacecakes,
which are baked with marijuana or hashish.
"Coffeeshop owners were completely unaware and shocked that their
spacecakes are not animal friendly," said a spokeswoman for Dutch animal rights
group Wakker Dier, campaigning against the use of eggs from chickens kept in
cages on battery farms.
According to the organisation, four large shops have already switched to free-range
eggs and 20 more plan to follow. The shops use hundreds of eggs each week to
satisfy the demand for spacecakes.
