What We Found

Cannibalism

Cannibalism is rampant in the crowded, starved conditions on cage-free farms. Ella’s feathers and sensitive sexual organs were viciously attacked.

Poison Gas

With birds and excrement everywhere, the air becomes so toxic that birds struggle to breathe. Ella and her sisters struggled for every breath. 

Death

Mortality on cage-free egg farms is up to four times higher than in other facilities. Dead birds pile up on the farm.

Fraud

Costco and other retailers claim their cage-free farms are free of fear, discomfort, and suffering - but in fact Ella lived in sickening conditions.
