    Go free range. Boycott factory farmed meat and eggs. On cartons of eggs or the packaging on meat make sure the words free range are present. Produce from free range farms is guaranteed not to have been raised using battery farming methods. By doing this, you will not be giving money to the animal abusers. Typically, look for cage free eggs that has the longest best before date (optional but recommended to prevent food poisoning), and lowest price.

    If you can, rescue battery chickens. This is not always possible due to economical, legal, or other reasons, but it is one surefire way to save an animal's life. Take care of your chickens well; they were once abused and need your love and support. Be sure they have at least 10 square feet pet living area per bird you rescue, and check on them regularly to make they have food and water.

  • You can have your own chickens so you don't have to go to the store for poultry products.
  • Consider becoming vegan, this way you are sure not to support any kind of cruelty.
  • Joining the ASPCA or the humane society can help.
  • If you are veggie/meat look up exactly where you get your eggs meat from, because some "free range" can be almost as bad as battery.


  • Don't trust anyone when it comes to this kind of thing. The brands only want money and may trick you into thinking that "their chickens are free range." On some brands, the front might say "free range" all over it's label, but if you look on the bottom of the carton or plastic, it will say made from caged hens! Pick a brand that does not want to pull a fast one on you, is free range, and has a longer best before date to prevent food poisoning.
