This Is Lucy

She hopes that you will . . .

Surrounding Lucy in the picture above are descriptions of all the illnesses and conditions endured by hens on egg laying farms. Life for Lucy and all her cage mates has been one of deprivation and misery.

The Truth About Eggs

Lucy has been confined in a cage on a Canadian egg farm for approximately a year-and-a-half. Because hens have been selectively bred to lay almost an egg a day, her body and reproductive system are exceedingly overburdened. She simply can’t lay anymore - she is what the egg industry calls “spent”. In other words, she is no longer profitable so they are going to kill her.

Lucy was born at a commercial hatchery. Like most females born into the egg industry, Lucy was debeaked, vaccinated and sent to a rearing facility until she was mature enough to start laying eggs. All the males born with Lucy were killed at 1-2 days old. Why? Because males can’t lay eggs and therefore they have no use to the egg industry. And because they are not genetically suited for meat production, male chicks are often dumped into a macerator at the hatchery and shredded alive.

Sadly, over 25,000,000 female hens are forced to lay eggs on Canadian egg farms, and an equal number of male chicks are killed every year.

And while it is too late to save Lucy, you can save another hen by leaving eggs off your plate.
