Last year, I visited an egg farm in Chino, California. This is what I saw:
Far from depicting the idyllic setting the egg industry wants you to picture when you open a carton of eggs, these photos tell the true story of egg-laying hens in Chino and on many factory farms in other towns across the country.
These hens were crammed four or five to a cage—unable to sit comfortably or even spread their wings—and were forced to live outside. The buildup of feces shows that the owner of this farm spent little time keeping the conditions sanitary.
When their frail bodies have been put through so much stress and they can no longer produce eggs, they are slaughtered and their flesh is used for chicken stock and soups.
The good news? YOU can speak up for these animals three times a day—every day—by choosing to leave eggs off your plate! Check out our vegan baking cheat sheet as well as our recipes for some delicious and cruelty-free meals!

Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
