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!
Super Indo, your 12 years of cage-free transition, will be the same as 12 years of hens suffering.
Five seconds of your time can make a huge difference for animals.
ASK SUPER INDO TO SHORTEN THEIR CAGE-FREE EGGS TRANSITION:
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.
Hens have an increased risk of bone diseases such as osteoporosis, making them prone to painful fractures. They have to stand on a metal grate that hurts their feet.
Sometimes dead hens are left to rot for days, forcing the surviving birds to live with decomposing bodies at their feet. They are forced to live above the heaps of their feces that accumulate beneath the cages.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has concluded that cage systems have a higher prevalence of Salmonella compared to cage-free systems. According to the World Health Organization, non-typhoidal Salmonella spp. are estimated to cause 93.8 million cases of acute gastroenteritis and 155,000 deaths globally each year, approximately 85% of which are estimated to be foodborne.
