On Monday (23rd May) activists gained entry to Cheeky Chicken in Papakura and removed 19 hens. Contrary to the huge smiling chicken that adorns the front of the farm, the birds trapped inside tiny cages were anything but happy. The conditions were disgusting and the birds were in poor condition with many suffering huge feather loss.

All hens have been placed in loving homes where they are enjoying the sun and freedom for the first time in their lives. They will never again endure suffering for human greed and profit.
