Neglected. Confined. Suffering.
Birds raised on factory farms for Starbucks’ chicken supply chain live a life of constant misery.
Boycott Starbucks Cruelty
Egg-laying hens are forcefully shoved inside wire cages, which do not adequately provide for their welfare. The cages are so overcrowded that hens cannot carry out many important, basic behaviours. Some hens cannot endure this extreme suffering and die in their cages.
Foot and claw damage are more frequent in cages than in other systems, with lesions, fissures, and twisted or broken claws resulting from stepping on sharp wiring every day. Often, other body parts are caught in the caging, which results in fractured or broken bones, deformities, and severe feather loss.
Like any animal, chickens are highly motivated to perform natural behaviors. Although some cage farms provide some token enrichment, it is so poor that it is of little or no significance to hens. The constant inability to perform any actions that feel natural leads to immense and unending frustration.
Open Wing Alliance
Initiated by The Humane League, Open Wing Alliance brings member organizations together to create a unified front in our campaign to free egg-laying hens from cages. We share campaign strategies, tactics and resources around the world in the march toward our shared objective.
