Choose Cage-Free

At this very moment, throughout the US and Canada, over 300 million hens are living lives of pain and suffering as they labor to produce one of our most basic food staples – eggs.

The vast majority of the eggs we eat are produced by hens that live their lives in small cages that they share with five to seven other birds. It is one of the cruelest and most inhumane practices in modern farming. In typical North America large-scale farming, hens are confined in small wire cages, stacked in tiers and lined up inside huge warehouses. The hens are so crowded that they cannot stretch their limbs and are often injured by friction against the cage.

This suffering is needless 

Hens don’t need to be kept in cages to lay lots of eggs. Cage-free farming can provide a significant improvement in living conditions for hens – for just a few cents more per egg.

Our solution

We are empowering everyone to learn about and commit to cage-free eggs. We are also working with farmers and businesses to adopt cage-free practices. Visit our Choose Cage Free website for more.

Did you know? Hens in cages are more prone to stress and injury, and an increased risk of Salmonella. Hens need room to move around, spread their wings and lay their eggs in a nesting area.
For just a few cents more per egg, you can make a difference. Change is possible. It begins with a simple choice. Join the flock - choose cage-free. Better for hens and safer, more wholesome eggs for you.
