START A PETITION

Focus: Animal Welfare
Action Request: Petition
Location: United States
Steggles, one of KFC's leading chicken meat suppliers, claims to raise their chickens "in custom built chicken barns where they are free to roam and have access to food and water." In reality, the chickens are packed densely into the barns, preventing them from pecking, roosting and stretching their wings as they would do in a natural environment. Major suppliers Turi Foods and the Australian Chicken Meat Federation raise their chickens similarly to Steggles, through their Websites display photos of spacious farms with free-roaming chickens. 

Australia currently has no legal standard for animal husbandry products, nor an enforceable definition of the term "free to roam." Please send a message to Australia's state animal welfare ministers to request tighter standards for animal welfare and animal product advertising.

Please sign the petition to make your voice heard.

Joseph Kony deserves to be arrested tomorrow. He's spent two decades committing horrific crimes against humanity. However, if he were to be arrested, would the children be safe? Not in the least. So, what can you do? 1. Only buy fair trade 2...
