Make Forced Molting ILLEGAL in the United States

This petition had 1,524 supporters

Forced Molting is a process allowed in the United States Egg Production where hens are subjected to being starved and given no water for a period of 10-14 days. This "shocks" the hens into starting a new laying cycle and it is therefore done when egg production declines. This is a cruel and inhumane process that leads to a number of hens losing their feathers as well as dying from the starvation. It has been rightfully banned in the United Kingdom but it continues to be legal in the United States. Forced Molting has been linked to salmonella contamination in the eggs due to the weakened immune system of these animals. Forced Molting is not only unbelievable cruel but it is also a huge health hazard. Please sign this petition and help me ban this practice forever!!
