Together, we can give chickens lives worth living

Give billions of chickens the freedom to live like chickens

Billions of chickens experience unbearable suffering across the world

In industrial farming, a chick may go her entire life without seeing sunlight.

She will live in an overcrowded environment, sometimes with less floor space to herself than an A4 piece of paper – forced to stand in her own faeces.

To make matters worse, she will have been selectively bred to grow as fast as possible. This rapid growth strains her heart and lungs. If the strain is very severe, she risks death from heart failure.

More than 60 billion chickens are farmed for meat every year. Nearly 40 billion of these are farmed industrially in crowded, barren, windowless sheds.

Every animal deserves a life without cruelty and suffering. One with the freedom to express their natural behaviour without fear. Together, we can give them that life.

With your help, we can challenge iconic food brands, governments and farmers to join us in delivering higher-welfare solutions to make a real difference to the lives of billions of meat chickens.

Together, we can change chickens’ lives for good. And we must, because a life of pain and suffering is no life at all. Will you join us, and help give chickens lives worth living?
