Back in 2009, Compassion Over Killing exposed horrendous cruelty at one of of Dunkin' Donuts egg suppliers. At the time, Dunkin' Donuts said it would investigate cage-free egg options, but have made no announcements since.
Dunkin' Donuts is a multi-billion dollar company, and they can afford to think about animal welfare. The company sells 2.5 million donuts per day (each containing eggs from a battery-caged hen) and many egg sandwiches as well. Dunkin' Donuts is responsible for keeping millions of hens in cages so small they can't stretch their wings.

In 2009, Compassion Over Killing exposed the cruelty occurring at a Dunkin' Donuts egg supplier. The hens that appeared in the video were kept in horrendous conditions, unable to eat or drink. Live hens were kept with dead and decomposing birds. At the time, Dunkin' Donuts claimed to be researching cage-free options, but has made no moves to go cage-free since.
Caged-birds are kept in cages so small they cannot stretch their wings. A switch to cage-free eggs at Dunkin' Donuts would improve the lives of millions of hens, as cage-free hens are allotted 2-3 times more space, and are able to move around more freely.
