Ban Battery Farming

Ban Battery Farming

Ban all battery farming.

Why is this important?

I first heard about battery farms when I was about 12. I was shocked at how I humane people could be and I wrote to my MP about it. When that achieved nothing I had to start this petition. I really hope to help the chickens in their horrible conditions.

Battery chickens don't get enough space to live. It is shown that they have high levels of stress and as a result they peck at each other and themselves. Cannibalism also occurs due to the stress caused by the lack of space. In response to this their beaks are chopped off with electronically heated blades which causes acute and chronic pain. Most of them never get to go outside and never get to see the sun, they remain in cages or crowded barns their whole lives until they are slaughtered for us to eat.
