    Correct Answer
    B. 2 to 3 years
    Explanation
    Battery hens are typically raised in intensive farming systems where they are confined to small cages and forced to produce eggs at a high rate. Due to the stressful and unnatural conditions they are kept in, battery hens have a shorter lifespan compared to free-range or backyard chickens. The average lifespan of a battery hen is 2 to 3 years. During this time, they are subjected to constant egg production, which takes a toll on their bodies and leads to health issues. After a few years, their egg production declines, and they are often culled or replaced with younger hens.
