Could you imagine living your life in a space so small that you could never spread your arms, lie down to sleep comfortably, or even turn around without knocking into someone? Every day is a living nightmare for birds in the egg industry—who endure this and worse.
Forced to live their entire lives packed into battery cages full of the living and the dead, most egg-laying hens never feel the sunlight until they’re thrown onto the back of transport trucks headed for slaughter.
To give people visiting PETA’s Los Angeles and Norfolk offices a new perspective on this issue, we’ve designed our elevators to look and feel like battery cages, giving people a unique view of who is on their plate. Check it out:

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 .
