When you are satisfied with your list of points…
Put them in a logical order.
Pull out any background information and save it for the introduction.

At present there is disagreement amongst scientists about health problems that LCE producing hens face due to their diet, the conditions they are kept in and the early age at which they begin to lay eggs. (topic sentence) … Recently, research has uncovered problems with the feed given to hens on LC chicken farms. In his book, Go to Work on an Egg John Easter explains the damaging effects of feed that is “low in calcium and vitamin A”. This can lead to poor bone development and thinner egg shells (59). Naturally farmers are concerned about the health of poorly fed hens and the effect this will have on egg production and sales.
