Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism

New Egg Labels ... or the Vegan Paradigm? ~ Lee Hall

new egg labels or veganism

‘If the times aren’t ripe, you have to ripen the times.’ - Dorothy Height, educator and social activist (1912-2010)

This month, a humane group announced a proposal to adjust the confinement standards for some chickens – specifically, egg-laying hens. United Egg Producers, the marketing association for the majority of U.S. egg sellers, agreed with the charity to back new cage sizes and ammonia levels, and mutually approved methods to force birds to ‘molt’ (a shedding and replacement of feathers, followed by heightened egg production for an extended period).  ‘Enriched colony cages’ would be designed to permit a semblance of perching and nesting motion, though the fruits of the ‘nesting’ will not belong to the birds.
