US - The Florida Poultry Federation has sent letters to all Florida cities warning them against approving resolutions that advise residents not to purchase eggs from caged chickens.

No Bay County city is considering such an ordinance, but poultry federation Executive Vice President Charles Smith said Thursday that several cities have adopted the measure, including New Port Richey in Pasco County and West Palm Beach.

"They contend that rearing birds in cages is inhumane,'' Smith said, adding that the resolutions harm the poultry business.
