Like so many Australians, we’re all actively making the conscious decision to choose cage-free eggs, however despite this shift, battery cages are still responsible for most of Australia’s egg production
Why? Because, the food service industry is where the majority of cage eggs end up.
RSPCA Victoria are asking consumers to show their commitment to cage- free eggs by Taking The Pledge and posting to social media to help spread the message.
Currently, over 10 million layer hens are still suffering in barren battery cages across Australia, crammed in with several other hens and with less space each than the size of an A4 piece of paper.
“Hens are social, curious and intelligent animals, and they need to be able to stretch their wings, scratch, peck and dustbathe, perch and lay their eggs in a nest,” RSPCA Humane Food Manager Hope Bertram said.
Help us speak out for those who can’t and make the pledge today!
