Choose Cage-Free Eggs and Give Our Feathered Friends a Better Life ! PLEASE SIGN ! !

Cher- 1 day ago - choosecagefree.org

It's in a hen's nature to lay her eggs in a nest, perch, scratch and strut about--but cages don't allow hens to do this. Choose cage-free eggs to promote the humane treatment and proper care of hens.

 I know dear Naomi , your warm heart was speaking. This world would be so much better as animals wouldn't suffer for meat , fur and entertainment.

All things that we do not need from animals.

But the futures that people understand that we need animals only to love them , to enjoy that they are our companions in this world is , I'm afraid , still far away.

 Yes Naomi , NO meat is the best.

But it is not a reality on this moment , so it is better that the animals are better treated before they are murdered.

McDonald's is one of the world's leading restaurants that purchases shell eggs. Because the fast food giant consumes such a large number of eggs, it's time it begins to switch to cage-free alternatives that don't harm the animals, and in turn, consumers.

The Egg Industry
5 years ago

The 280 million chickens used each year for their eggs, called "laying hens" by the industry, endure a nightmare that lasts for two years.

At just a few days old, a large portion of each hen's beak is cut off with a burning-hot blade, and no painkillers are used. Many birds, unable to eat because of the pain, die from dehydration and weakened immune systems.

After enduring these mutilations, hens are shoved into tiny wire "battery" cages, which measure roughly 18 by 20 inches and hold five to 11 hens, each of whom has a wingspan of 32 inches. Even in the best-case scenario, each hen will spend the rest of her life crowded in a space about the size of a file drawer with four other hens, unable to lift even a single wing.

The birds are crammed so closely together that these normally clean animals are forced to urinate and defecate on one another. The stench of ammonia and feces hangs heavy in the air, and disease runs rampant in the filthy, cramped sheds. Many birds die, and survivors are often forced to live with their dead and dying cagemates, who are sometimes left to rot.

The light in the sheds is constantly manipulated in order to maximize egg production. Periodically, for two weeks at a time, the hens are only fed reduced-calorie feed. This process induces an extra laying cycle.

Male chicks are worthless to the egg industry, so every year millions of them are tossed into trash bags to suffocate or are thrown into high-speed grinders called "macerators" while they are still alive.After two years in these conditions, the hens' bodies are exhausted, and their egg production drops. These "spent" hens are shipped to slaughterhouses, where their fragile legs are forced into shackles and their throats are cut. By the time they are sent to slaughter, roughly 29 percent of the hens are suffering from broken bones resulting from neglect and rough treatment. Their emaciated bodies are so damaged that their flesh can generally be used only for chicken noodle soup, companion animal food, or "canned, boned, and diced" meat.
