Eleven million layer hens suffer in battery cages every year. Between 3 and 8 birds are crammed in each cage, giving these hens less space than an A4 piece of paper. You can help set them free.
Help layer hens. Tell the NSW Agriculture Minister to ban battery cages now
Caged chickens need you to help set them free.
We have a once in a generation opportunity to get chickens out of cages right across Australia.
The Agricultural Ministers will be meeting to discuss a proposed 10 year phase-out of battery cages for layer hens. You can help them make the right decision.
Fill in this form to email NSW Agricultural Minister, Adam Marshall and tell him to support the 10-year phase-out of battery cages. NSW has the most layer hens of any Australian state, so their support is crucial.

To the Hon Adam Marshall MP.
I call on you to support the 10 year phase-out of battery cages. Battery cages force chickens to live in a space no larger than an A4 sheet of paper. It restricts their ability to display natural behaviours, causing severe emotional distress. It also leads to serious physical harm including brittle bones and muscle weakness. No animal should be forced to live this way.
Please use your voice to help give these chickens lives worth living. Commit to supporting the proposed 10-year phase-out of cruel battery cages.
