How would you like to live in a cage smaller than a piece of paper for the rest of your life?  Sounds pretty horrible, right?  Well, that is the life that egg-laying hens suffer.  95% of all eggs come from caged hens, where about three hens are housed in each tiny battery cage, causing most of them to suffer broken bones and paralysis.  “What about free-range hens?” you ask.  While these hens are not put through the abuse of battery cages, they are usually not roaming around outside either.  They are normally confined to crowded indoor spaces, as well as other routine inhumane practices, such as debeaking.
