Behind closed doors, an animal welfare atrocity is unfolding. Chickens account for 9 in every 10 land animals raised for food worldwide. Tragically, these sensitive beings have little to no legal protections, and face some of the worst and most extreme forms of animal abuse in our food system.

Bred to grow unnaturally fast, these birds suffer from debilitating diseases while trapped in filthy, overcrowded sheds. In their final moments, chickens are hung painfully upside down, struggling to breathe, as they face the terror of “live-shackle slaughter.” Millions will suffer broken bones in the process. Thousands are boiled alive every week.

Food companies have the power to end this abuse. In fact, numerous companies have already made public commitments to do better for chickens within their operations. But many would rather keep these torturous conditions under wraps.

The silence must stop, and companies must follow through by implementing the policies they pledged to put in place and being transparent about the progress.

You can help call out companies that needlessly contribute to this cycle of abuse. Join us to demand that corporate giants do better for chickens by implementing—and showing public progress toward—meaningful animal welfare improvements. Together we can send shockwaves through the food industry and end some of the very worst abuses faced by animals today. Ready to make a difference?
