What You Can Do

    Don't buy Eggs.

    Ninety-eight percent of eggs are produced from hens forced to live in battery cages. Almost every egg eaten from a restaurant, a fast-food place, or purchased at your local grocery store has come from hens living in similar conditions to those illustrated on this website.

    Go Vegan!

    Adopting a vegan diet, one free of animal products, is the most important thing you can do to promote kindness and compassion towards animals.

    Hens are not the only animals that suffer miserably on factory farms. Pigs, cows, turkeys, and other farmed animals suffer from a system in which living feeling animals are regarded as mere property, commodities to be exploited for every last penny.

    Every time you sit down for a meal, you have the choice to contribute to animal abuse, suffering, and exploitation, or to make the kind, compassionate, and liberating choice of veganism. Please, for the animals, go vegan!

    Change the Law.

    Hundreds of millions of hens endure the inherent cruelty of the battery cage system every year. In 1999, the European Union voted to ban the use of these cages. Sadly, the U.S. has not followed. Contact your representatives and demand that they take a stand against blatant animal cruelty by banning battery cages.
