Egg Farm Hens Set Free. Normal and Nature.

After a change of heart, a former egg farmer vows that his cages will never again hold a chicken captive. This video shows the amazing progress these captive hens make once freed. The video introduces us to Cinderella, one of the lucky 752 hens that were liberated from their cages on December 28th and 29th 2012. The farmer did not want the hens to be slaughtered instead, he wanted to make sure these animals received the treatment they always deserved.

We see the terrible physical condition the hens are in as they are saved, some are too weak to stand, with feathers falling out and severe physical disabilities. This is the result of the inhumane living conditions they are kept in. The hens are subjected to claustrophobic cages that are dirty and stacked in cramped conditions. Normally these hens would live in these conditions until their egg production fell below an allotted amount, after which they would be slaughtered. Typically, they would be refused the most basics of natural rights, they would never feel the sun, breathe fresh air or feel the soil under their feet. The optimal output of eggs from an egg farm hen normally lasts 2-3 years, the negative effects of being stuck in cages takes a toll on the hens. This is not even half of the eight-year natural life-span of a chicken.

Normal And Nature

We are shown how these chickens embrace their newly gained freedom, where they enjoy the simplest of things for the first time. Having the space to flap their wings in a breeze, scratching soil for a dustbathe, feel the sunlight and breath fresh air. Things so simple and expected we take them for granted. Now, these brilliant animals are loved for who they are, not what you can produce and how much profit they can make. These are activities so natural for chickens, they are imprinted at hatching, yet they are denied to over 11 million laying hens- just like Cinderella- in Australia alone.

This does not need to be what is considered normal. Should it not be normal for humans to be kind to other living animals?

Investigation into Commercial Chickens- Meat and Eggs

cruelty in chicken industry

Chicken hatcheries have some of the worst animal welfare standards on the planet. This video depicts the horrifying evidence revealed through a covert operation, into the conditions faced by chickens raised for commercial use. This is the hideous ‘existence’ commercial egg farms and hatcheries force upon these defenseless animals.  They are treated with no compassion or care; they are purely a commodity.

Filmed by Animal Equality this video has received almost 40 million views on Facebook, before it was taken down. The video shows the brutal practices that are commonplace in commercial egg farms and hatcheries all over the world.

Over 50% of hatchlings are killed in horrendous ways, hatcheries only consider hens of monetary value. This means that male chicks are disposed of within hours of hatching, by being shredded alive in industrial-grade shredder. Hens that do not meet the strict egg farm standards face a similarly cruel fate. Deformities occur with the breed of chicken used by the meat industry, known as ‘broilers.’

Animal Equality

An international non-profit organization Animal Equality works to end the inhumane treatment of farm animals. They want to ensure animals are given the protection and respect that they deserve.  They conduct multiple covert operations, to bring light to the disturbing situations in slaughterhouses and factory farms. To help people wanting to convert to veganism they have created the website loveveg.com.

What a Baby Chick has to Experience in his life?

Published

In this harrowing video, we are shown the nightmare newly hatched chicks are faced with. From their perspective. We see them cry, as they try and fail to attract their mothers. Chicks that hatch in facilities connected to commercial food production will never know their mother’s embrace and the safety that brings. They are forced on to seemingly endless conveyor belts, where they are dropped and slammed about, with not a shred of kindness shown to them. One chick is even shown with its leg stuck in the conveyer belt as it is being pulled away.

In these types of facilities, hatchlings never see their mothers. Mother hens have their eggs taken from them to be hatched in hatcheries, using artificial methods to get the eggs to hatch. Through selective breeding chicks raised for the meat industry are deformed, making them larger, but unable to support themselves. They are killed within hours of hatching, never leaving the hatchery. As male chicks can not produce eggs, they are of no use to commercial egg farms and are shredded alive by industrial machinery.

First-Person Perspective

We get to see the nightmarish beginning of these chicks lives through their eyes, in this covert video. The horrendous conditions and suffering they are put through, only to be brutally killed. This recording was taken by an undercover Israeli Organization ‘Animals Now’. These conditions are not unique to Israel and are a widespread standard across the world.

Baby Birds Liquified Alive in a Macerator

This video shows the brutal and horrific moments countless baby chicks are liquified using a macerator. It depicts the cruel and unethical treatment these helpless animals suffer, only moments after hatching. As male chicks are incapable of producing more eggs they are disposed of, with no regard for their suffering.

Regardless, if eggs come from a farm or factory farm that prides itself on a high standard of animal welfare, the sad truth is they are supplied by industrial hatcheries such as the one shown. Hens that are reared for commercial use are spared the macerator but, go on to live a miserable existence in egg farms. They will be caged in claustrophobic conditions for the duration of their life, with the sole purpose of producing eggs. Where they will be discarded like garbage once their egg production falls below an optimal output, as a result he laying hens are replaced every few years. Meaning the lives of these animals are determined by purely financial motives. There is no thought or consideration given to these animals, they are simply a financial statistic.
