Tell me again how your egg addiction is worth their pain? “
You can’t walk a mile in the shoes of a battery chicken, because battery chickens can’t walk a foot, much less a mile. But stand for an hour in the cage of a battery chicken, Stand jammed so tightly in a cage with other birds that you cannot turn around or stretch your wings. Stand up to your knees in your own excrement and the excrement of your fellow prisoners while being constantly splattered with the feces and urine of prisoners in cages stacked above you. Breathe air so poisonous with ammonia from the urine that your jailers and torturers have to wear protective masks when they enter the building. Never see sunshine. Never breathe fresh air. If you are injured or fall ill, just suffer; nobody cares, nobody is going to send for a doctor. If you die, so what? It’s cheaper that way.” -A quote from a speech transcript by Norm Phelps
“This was his last moment on earth. He tried to fly away, but he was too young. He was someone. And he wanted to live.” – Mikko Alanne from Twitter
This is what happens in the egg industry. All male chicks are put into industrial blenders while still alive (or suffocated in bags). This happens even when your eggs are labelled “free range” or “humane.” Go vegan today.
