For better lives for suffering birds.

Broiler chickens account for nine out of every 10 animals caught up in the food industry—over nine billion broiler chickens are killed for their meat each year in the United States. These birds are genetically designed to grow at an extreme pace, leading to intense physical suffering over the course of their shortened lives.

Life on a factory farm

Most chickens raised for meat spend their entire lives in windowless warehouses packed wing-to-wing with other birds. Due to their rapid growth and living conditions, these animals often suffer from heart attacks, lung failure and other illnesses or injuries.

Hope on the horizon

Thanks to our work, many of the world’s biggest companies have committed to improving the way broiler chickens are raised. Some industry allies are now demanding that suppliers slow the birds' unnaturally rapid growth and offer natural light, some enrichment and more space for the animals to live.
