UCI SHOULD STOP BUYING EGGS THAT COME FROM ABUSED HENS
UCI Dining Services should stop purchasing eggs produced by hens confined to battery cages. Hens are crammed into battery cages so tightly that they cannot spread their wings, let alone walk. Each hen in a battery cage has less space than this sheet of paper in which to live her entire adult life. We oppose the use of battery cage eggs because this form of intensive confinement is cruel and inhumane and unnecessary. UCI should join the more than 150 colleges and universities across the country who now use cage-free eggs, including UC Berkeley, Stanford, Yale, Princeton, Georgetown, and University of Wisconsin, Madison.
We, the undersigned students of UCI, respectfully request that UCI Dining Services stop purchasing eggs produced by hens confined to battery cages and switch to purchasing only cage-free eggs.
