Take Action for Thousands of Tortured Hens!

PETA eyewitness investigates filthy egg factory farm near Sulphur, Oklahoma

Many hens survived all that, only to be dumped onto a conveyor belt and then into trucks, where they landed amid massive piles of their dead cagemates. Workers tried to kill the survivors by slamming them against the trucks, beating them with a piece of wood, or breaking their necks.

A PETA eyewitness investigation into a filthy egg factory farm near Sulphur, Oklahoma, that supplies eggs to, among others, The Kroger Co. (“Kroger“)—which sells them as Kroger-brand eggs—reveals that nearly 8,000 hens suffered and died in a matter of weeks in July and August 2018, when temperatures in the farm’s sheds reached 106 degrees.

Over several days in early August, workers yanked more than 49,000 unwanted hens out of their cages, beat their heads against metal boxes, stuffed them inside the boxes, and then crudely gassed them with carbon dioxide, which can cause extreme pain. Countless hens survived the abuse, as well as being dumped into trucks, so they were beaten with a piece of wood or slammed against the trucks. Those who still remained alive were left to die slowly and in agony.

PETA has notified the farm’s customers and law-enforcement officials of the systemic suffering of hundreds of thousands of chickens still alive on this farm. But these hens need all the help they can get right now—and they desperately need your voice.

Please help us get these gentle, suffering hens relief today and ensure that fewer of them have to face this painful, terrifying fate tomorrow.
