Dear Lori,
One of the worst industrial farming abuses is the confinement of hens to barren battery cages, where hens are crammed together with little room to move - let alone flap their wings. Congress is currently considering ground-breaking, bi-partisan legislation that will vastly improve the welfare of egg-laying hens in the U.S.

Egg Bill Action buttonTake action now to help improve the lives of millions of hens.

If passed, the Egg Products Inspection Act Amendments of 2012 ( HR 3798) will:

1) ban barren battery cages;

2) give hens nearly double the amount of space they currently have;

3) provide space and enrichments for nesting and perching, so that birds have more opportunity to engage in and express natural behaviors; and

4) require labeling on egg cartons about how the birds were raised (e.g. egg cartons would be labeled as "from caged hens," "from cage-free hens," etc.) enabling consumers to choose higher-welfare, cage-free eggs.

Please take action today and urge Congress to support this critical legislation for farm animal welfare.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
Sharanya signature Small
