Better Chicken Initiative Petition

Help improve the lives of chickens!

As a conscientious consumer and supporter of Compassion in World Farming’s Better Chicken Initiative, I care how chickens are treated. I want every chicken to have enough room to move about freely, an enriched environment and natural light to encourage natural behavior, and genetics that don’t inherently cause suffering. I believe a chicken should be allowed to be a chicken.

"IF IT IS SUCCESSFUL, THIS INITIATIVE WILL IMPROVE THE LIVES OF MILLIONS, PERHAPS BILLIONS, OF CHICKENS AND CREATE A HEALTHIER FOOD AND FARMING SYSTEM."

Chicken factory farmers speak out

pilgrims email2.jpg Pilgrim's Pride, the 2nd largest chicken company in the US, sent a letter to its farmers saying they should not let anyone, apart from essential people, into their chicken houses. What were they hiding? Thanks to whistleblower farmers Mike Weaver and Eric Hedrick, now we know the truth.

Gangrenous dermatitis is a bacteria that infects soft tissue, causing disturbing skin lesions on chickens like the ones seen in our video. Farmers are concerned that some of the diseased birds are going off to slaughter, and ending up on dinner plates.

Tell Pilgrim's Pride CEO chickens, and customers, deserve better.
