Last chance to make a submission to free hens from battery cages once and for all.


To the Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines review,

I write to ask that the Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Poultry be amended to include a nationwide ban of battery cages and cruel farming practices including but not limited to debeaking, forced moulting, and food and water deprivation.  It is unacceptable that these animals have been condemned to a life of cruelty and exploitation just for the production of cheap eggs.  

The Australian public refuses to allow these cruelties to continue and it is time that the standards reflect that.  

Good animal welfare is a combination of physical and mental wellbeing and natural living. None of these are currently being granted to egg-laying hens. They need space to move, nest and behave naturally. 

So I ask you, please join the ACT, Europe, the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Canada in banning the battery cage, debeaking and other cruel farming methods and help improve the lives of millions of hens all around Australia.

Kind regards,

    I am happy to pay more for eggs just to know that the hens have improved living conditions. What sort of society condones cruel farming methods because they are hidden out of sight from most people, it is wrong and immoral.

    Are you kidding. How is a civilised nation still doing this. Still trading our conscience for a couple of pennies on the price of eggs. Please end this ridiculously cruel practice. Australian’s deserve agricultural industries that are not founded on Dickensian style torture and pain.

    I hope this is in aid of full free range!

    We have enough land for these chickens to roam free and not live a life of hell as they do in these cages!
