Eating Eggs is Eating Cruelty
APRIL 3, 2009
Egg laying hens are arguably the most abused animals on today’s factory farms. They are subjected to toxic fumes from the pools of waste that lie beneath them, and they are roughly handled by factory workers. Birds suffering from broken bones, bloody open wounds, and untreated infections. The last thing I want to point out is that Maine’s law does not specify how many hens may be kept in a cage, nor does it specify how chickens should be humanely euthanized.
