Humane Food Display at RSPCA WA Education

Leave a Comment

From paddock to plate, we have a responsibility to shop and eat humanely. At the RSPCA we believe that all animals, including farm animals, should live a life in accordance with the five freedoms.

We have a new display in our Education Room at RSPCA WA which gives a visual example of how chickens may look cramped and living in battery cages. Our display is not an exact replica of battery cages but gives a good indication of the limited space chickens have in this type of environment and the fact that they don’t have the freedom to express normal behaviour. A chicken’s normal behaviour includes dust bathing, scratching in the dirt, flapping their wings and nesting. Chickens can’t do any of these behaviours while they are cramped in a cage. We can help chickens have a better life by choosing to buy free range or barn laid eggs with the RSPCA’s paw of approval.

Several posters and stickers from the RSPCA Humane Food campaign.
