Target Corp. has announced that it’s transitioning to selling only cage-free eggs by 2025, reports MPR.

Target joins a growing list of companies across the country that have announced plans in recent months to source their eggs from cage-free producers. They include General Mills, Michael Foods, McDonald’s, Burger King, Denny’s, Wendy’s, Quiznos, ConAgra Foods, Costco, and Mondelez International (maker of Cadbury chocolates, Ritz crackers, Oreo cookies).

Currently, only about 10% of chickens in the U.S. are being raised cage-free—one reason the food companies that are pledging a shift to eggs from chickens raised this way won’t be able to fulfill those pledges quickly.
