Massachusetts Residents:
Take Action for Hens!


The Massachusetts Legislature is currently considering legislation to improve the lives of hens in the egg industry. The bill would require egg producers to give hens the opportunity to engage in natural behaviors such as nesting and dust-bathing, which are critical to their well-being. Use the form below to contact your state legislators and ask them to support H.4146, An Act to Upgrade Hen Welfare and Establish Uniform Cage Free Standards.

Hens in the egg industry suffer some of the worst welfare conditions of all terrestrial farmed animals. Progress is being made, but we aren’t done yet. H.4146 is a critical next step.
