Chickens suffer in the egg industry. Animals on typical “free-range” farms often spend much of their time confined to crowded sheds or mud-filled pens, just as animals on conventional factory farms do. While the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires animals on so-called “free-range” farms to have access to outdoor areas, it doesn’t specify how much time they must be allowed to spend outside or how much space they should be given.
These conditions are common on farms that supply eggs marketed to consumers, who think they are paying more for humane, “cage-free” eggs. When a business uses animals for profit, the animals always suffer.
The best way to help chickens is to stop eating their eggs and flesh. Thanks to delicious vegan options, it’s never been easier to replace eggs and meat in everyday cooking.
