This year is the 40th birthday of the Egg McMuffin, an iconic staple on the McDonalds menu. But did you know that for every Egg McMuffin sold a hen must suffer 30 long torturous hours in a cage the size of an A4 sheet of paper?
Here in Australia there are approximately 12 million laying hens currently living out death sentences; debeaked at birth, confined to a small cage for 14 months with no room to perch, flap their wings, riddled with injuries and then slaughtered when their egg production wanes.
12 MILLION CURIOUS AND SOCIAL HENS LIVING A LIFE OF MISERY.
McDonalds Australia accounts for almost a quarter of a million birds that are currently locked away in intensive egg producing factory farms. Coles and Woolworths have already signed on to a cage-free future but McDonalds refuses to budge!
SIGN THIS PETITION TO LET MCDONALDS KNOW THAT YOU DEMAND A CAGE-FREE FUTURE FOR AUSTRALIAN CHICKENS!
