U.S. Residents - Please Help IDA Fight Passage of the Egg Products Inspection Act Amendments of 2013!

In Defense of Animals

Ninety-five percent of egg-laying hens spend their entire short, miserable lives crammed into tiny cages with as many as ten hens per cage. Battery cages are stacked on top of one another and are packed into windowless sheds with thousands of hens per shed. Hens are so confined in battery cages that each bird has less than half the size of a sheet of paper to herself. These hens never get to breathe fresh air, see or feel the sunlight, nest, forage, or even turn around.

This legislation seeks to establish "enriched" battery cages for egg-laying hens as a national standard that cannot be changed by individual states or by public vote. Hens should not be confined to battery cages, "enriched" or not.
