Once upon a time chickens ranged free. Their eggs were hand-picked and locally sold. Today’s hens are born in sorting factories. The females are debeaked without aesthetic, They are confined in ‘battery’ cages where they can barely move and their eggs are collected by machine and distributed by trucks.

Farm Sanctuary SA rescues these ‘spent’ hens from industrialized egg ‘farms’ and give them a crack at a better life in our ‘EGGHEAD’ container. The Urban Hen Project provides the public with the opportunity to adopt two or more of these hens. The more we adopt, the more we can save. The Urban Hen Project is available directly at Farm Sanctuary SA – but If you can’t make it to adopt a hen with us, be a good egg and buy cage-free eggs or shop alternatives to egg products. Together, we can crack an industry that has turned fowl.
