More good news, this time for chickens in the US


The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and United Egg Producers (UEP) have joined up to better the lives of farmed chickens in the US. This was such great news to end the night on yesterday (and right after posting some other great news) and I love sharing good news with all of you! I only wish there were more of me to share all of this information with all of you, ha!

According to the HSUS, this “could result in a complete makeover of the U.S. egg industry and improve the treatment of the 280 million laying hens used each year in U.S. egg production.” Find out more about the law here.

But it hasn’t changed anything yet and the chickens still need our help. If you’re in the US, you can send this letter to your member of Congress asking them to “support federal legislation to phase out barren battery cages for egg-laying hens”. Especially if you eat eggs, please send this letter and ask others you know to send it as well and make the lives for these chickens much better than they currently are. Thank you!
