Just like you do.
Right now, Australia’s cruellest farming device — the battery cage — is under review.
This could be a breakthrough for animals. Or, it could lock in more cruelty, for decades.
Egg industry bosses have had their say: they want to keep hens in cages.
Now, the Government is asking for feedback from people like you.
Let them have it
Join 117,442 kind people — make an urgent public submission calling for an end to battery cage cruelty.
The Aus government needs to eliminate cages.
The Animal Welfare League, Voiceless and Animal Liberation are some of the major animal welfare organisations that back an end to caging hens. Animal welfare science confirming that cages cause suffering of chickens has influenced multiple overseas governments to announce a phase out of cages. Many large corporations, including Hilton, Hungry Jack's and Nestle, are already shifting to eggs that aren't from hens in cages.
The time has come to make the ethical decision.
