Meet Betty: Betty is a sociable hen.

She loves
to scratch and peck in the soil, dustbathe, and
build a nest to lay her eggs in comfort and
privacy. Betty has capabilities, instincts and
behavioural needs well beyond what many
people have considered. She can recognise
over 100 of her friends by their facial features;
she has more than 24 distinct cries that
communicate a wealth of information; and
she is an excellent problem solver. But there’s
one problem Betty can’t solve on her own...

Betty is also one of


approximately 11 million
hens imprisoned in battery
cages in factory farms in
Australia. She is denied all of
her basic behavioural needs
that provide quality of life.

Betty is crammed into a


wire cage with up to five
other birds, each given a
‘living’ space smaller than
one A4 sheet of paper—not even enough room
to stretch their wings. They have no nest, no
perch, and only barren wire to stand on and rub
painfully against 24 hours a day.

1 Cage Egg = 30 hours of battery hen suffering

Factory farms are animal prisons. Help us close their doors forever.
