Choose cage-free eggs and give our feathered friends a better life
It’s in a hen’s nature to lay her eggs in a nest, perch, scratch and strut about — but cages don’t allow hens to do this. Choose cage-free eggs to promote the humane treatment and proper care of hens.
Why Choose Cage-Free?
- 95 percent of egg laying hens are crammed
into tiny barren cages
- With 6-8 hens per cage, each one lives on a space smaller than a sheet
of notebook paper
- Little room to turn around or stretch their wings causes
stress, frustration, and injuries.
- Cage-free farming means better hen health and welfare — and safer,
more wholesome eggs for you
Give a Cluck About Hens
Hens are intelligent and social animals and far too
many of them are living in small, cramped cages.

Spread the Word
Educate your friends about the importance of choosing cage-free eggs.
By Kara A. Mergl, Manager, Sustainable Business
Remember when we were kids and our parents told us to just be ourselves? We eventually figured out that being ourselves is important to our overall ability to thrive and be healthy. When we’re truly comfortable with ourselves and surrounded by friends and family who understand our individual uniqueness, that’s when we’re at our best. And the same is true for animals – they’re at their happiest and most productive when they can just be themselves.

As you can imagine, I'm very passionate about my work at WSPA. I enjoy every aspect of it. But there are some areas that I really love — engaging with the media to get our stories out to a wide variety of people across North America is one of my favorite jobs.
