Each year, hundreds of millions of chickens suffer tremendously on farms that raise chickens for McDonald’s menu items. These birds are bred to be so unnaturally big their own legs can’t support their weight. They are crammed into dark sheds and trapped in filth, unable to engage in most natural behaviors. These horrific conditions are unacceptable.
Nearly 90 companies - including many of McDonald’s competitors such as Burger King, Subway, and Jack in the Box - have already committed to making meaningful changes that will improve the lives of these smart and social animals. Meanwhile, McDonald’s continues to drag its feet.
As one of the world’s most notable brands, McDonald’s has the power to eliminate the cruelest farming practices used by its producers and reduce the suffering of millions of birds.
