kelly tombs started this petition to Anastasia Palaszczuk (Queensland Premier)

We want to get hens out of battery cages. My name is Sienna, I am 10 years old and I think hens should definitely not be in battery cages. Chickens have a life, and they want to be out running around free not stuck in a cage unable to flap their wings for their whole life! Chickens like to scratch and play in the sunshine and dirt and enjoy their own life.

Fight for these poor vulnerable chickens. Hens in battery cages also suffer from broken bones, feather loss and foot problems. They also suffer a high amount of stress, and a lack of exercise which can cause A disease that results in painful liver rupture and sometimes death. 

In both the ACT and New Zealand they are phasing out battery cages, and they are already banned in many other countries. From 2022 it will be illegal to have battery hens in New Zealand. As Queenslanders we want to be able to say that we are proud to be leading Australia and the world, in the fight against animal cruelty. Lend a hand to these vulnerable chickens.

let’s show people how passionate we are about treating animals with respect!!
