Every hen is an individual, each with her own unique personality. Just like us, some hens are shy, others are confident. Some live for adventures, while others just like to hang out with their friends.
But no matter what their differences, all hens have one thing in common: they suffer immensely in cages.
Trapped in cramped, factory farm cages, there isn't even enough room for hens to spread their wings – let alone engage in normal and natural behaviours like dustbathing, foraging, or building a nest in peace and privacy.
In fact, the constant noise, stench and complete lack of stimulation or exercise inside the cages can make hens so stressed and miserable that they'll resort to pecking each other and pulling out their feathers. Sometimes this frustration leads to extremely aggressive behaviour — and the desperate hens will peck each other to death.
There is no need to subject hens to this terrible treatment. Over 40% of Romania's egg producers already don't confine hens to cruel battery cages. The more people who demand a better life for hens, the stronger the message we will send to the egg industry that they must abolish the cruel and outdated cage system.
