Millions of hens still suffer every day in cages. Please add your voice to call on the UK Governments to end this once and for all.
As an animal welfare specialist, I have dedicated my career to helping animals.
I started rescuing hens as I learnt more about the cruelty they suffer from being kept in cages. Recently, I adopted a hen called Beatrice. Today, Beatrice is on the road to recovery, and is getting stronger and healthier with each step. But it wasn’t always this way.
Beatrice was raised in a cage, with barely room to spread her wings. Dimly lit, noisy and crowded, every day was filled with frustration and misery. She was one of the lucky ones. Beatrice was rescued from her cage and is now living her best life with other rescued hens.
Right now, there are millions of hens suffering like she did – but you can change their story. Please sign this petition to tell the Government they must urgently ban cruel and outdated cages for laying hens.
More and more restaurants and supermarkets are promising to end cages in their supply chains. But even when their commitments are fulfilled, eggs from caged hens will still be used in many industries and up to 8 million hens will still be caged in the UK every year.
The only way to stop this suffering is for the UK Governments to ban this outdated practice once and for all. The UK is a nation of animal lovers and we’ve shown time and again that we want better protections for animals.
The UK Governments must ban cages for all laying hens by 2026.
Thank you for taking action for animals.
