For the first time in 15 years, the Australian Animal Welfare Codes and Guidelines are up for review.
It is common practice in Australian poultry farms to confine hens to battery cages for their entire egg-laying lives. They experience extreme cruelty like beak mutilation and this is all just to minimise cost and maximise production of eggs.
You can make a difference by writing to the Australian Animal Welfare Codes and Guidelines review board and telling them you want to free hens from battery cages now.
