Can you imagine the angst of spending your whole life in a crowded cage, in which you can barely stretch and walk?
This is how the majority of hens exploited for eggs in Indonesia live. They live in extreme confinement, and many of them are injured and stressed. More companies are committed to walking away from cages like this, and Super Indo should be too!
But Super Indo’s 12 years of cage-free transition, the same as 12 years of suffering for hens.
Five seconds of your time can make a huge difference for animals.

Why do we need to get rid of cages?
Lack of space
Up to 8 hens can be crammed together into one small cage. This usually means each one of them has a space smaller than an A4 sheet of paper to spend their whole lives in.
They cannot express their natural behaviors, such as spreading their wings, walking freely, or nesting.
This deprivation leads them to feel constantly frustrated.
They tend to have bone diseases such as osteoporosis, making them prone to fractures and deformations. They stand on the cage metal grid, which hurts their feet.
Sometimes, dead hens are left to rot for days, forcing the surviving hens to live next to the decaying bodies of their peers. In cages, hens usually are forced to live among manure.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has concluded that cage systems have a higher prevalence of Salmonella compared to cage-free systems.
