|WHAT'S WRONG WITH CAGES?|
Imagine if you had to spend every day stuck in a cage. Imagine that it's always noisy and smelly. Imagine that you're surrounded by others, just like you, and they're all trapped in cages too. None of you ever get to go outside or play with your friends.
How would you feel? Sad? Bored? Angry? Maybe all three?
This is what life is like for hens who lay cage eggs. They live in crowded cages, inside giant smelly sheds, called factory farms.
Why are they there? So that people can make money by selling their eggs :(
But, with your help, we're going to get them out!
Just like you, chickens have their own personalities and likes and dislikes. Just like you, they don't want to live their whole life trapped in a cage.
The good news, they don't have to! But they need your help. You can free chickens from cages starting today! Click here to find out how you can be a champion for chickens.
Not so long ago, there was no such thing as a battery cage for chickens. What happened is that there were so many people wanting so many eggs that little grassy farms like the ones you've probably seen in storybooks just couldn't produce enough eggs to keep up. So farms started putting more and more chickens into smaller and smaller spaces, so that they could get more and more eggs.
Sadly, today millions of chickens in Australia live in places just like the one in the picture. Just so that people can buy cage eggs :(
But does it have to be like this? No way! You can help stop this cruelty and free chickens from cages. How?
If no one buys cage eggs, then no hen has to live in a cage. Problem solved! So make sure to ask your parents and friends not to buy cage eggs too!
