TAIPEI, Taiwan — Animal protection activists on Saturday lodged a protest at the McDonald’s headquarters in Taipei over its use of eggs from battery-caged hens.

Activists urged the leading fast-food chain to use eggs from free-range chickens or else face continued protests.

There are around 30 million egg-laying hens raised in Taiwan.    [FULL  STORY]
