And you thought cages for
hens had been abolished...?
Viva! goes undercover
to show the lives of
Britain's laying hens
A carefully constructed lie
The sad reality is, many of these birds are unlikely to ever see the sunlight or walk on grass.
Just over half of the eggs from British hens continue to be laid by hens living in vertically stacked ‘enriched’ cages.
Viva!’s new Cracked campaign pulls together the findings of a
year-long investigation into the life of Britain’s laying hens.
Our team of investigators went undercover in free range,
organic and enriched cage farms across the country to
show you what life is really like for hens in since the ban
on battery cages.
Do you know a hen with a special personality, or a heart-warming story?
