Can you imagine the angst of spending your whole life in a crowded cage, in which you can barely stretch and walk?

Why do we need to get rid of cages?
Lack of space
Up to 12 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.
