The Hen Project 6 - EGGS
Painted for Viva! by Philip McCulloch-Downs using photographs fron Viva!'s investigations into UK egg farms. A socially and culturally conditioned habit.
The 6th video of ‘The Hen Project’ created by Philip McCulloch-Downs as part of Viva!’s ‘CRACKED’ campaign against UK egg farms.
A socially and culturally conditioned habit.
A habit with health risks that far outweigh any nutritional gain.
To feed this habit the UK industry requires 2.6 billion new chicks per year producing 11.8 billion eggs.
To feed this habit 40 million ‘reject’ male chicks are gassed every year.
To feed this habit, intelligent, social animals are forced to live in abject misery, housed in excruciating conditions for their 72 week lifespan.
EGGS: a source of salmonella bacteria, veterinary drug residues, environmental pollutants, cholesterol, choline and saturated fats.
EGGS: cannot legally be advertised as ‘healthy’, ‘nutritious’, ‘protein rich’ or ‘safe’.
EGGS: an unnatural habit.
