Improve the Lives of Egg-Laying Hens
Update: On June 19th the Senate voted to exclude Feinstein's amendment to the Farm Bill.
However, please support these two bills, which would provide same protections for egg-laying hens.
Each bill has broad powers to regulate agricultural activities. Collectively, HR 3798 and S 3239 could impact the lives of over 250 million egg-laying hens.
If passed, these bills would:
- Double the amount of space per bird
- Ban forced starvation molting
- Prohibit excessive levels of ammonia in hen houses
- Require humane euthanasia of spent hens
Please write a brief, polite email to Congress in support of HR 3798 and S 3239 to improve the lives of egg-laying hens.
