Free Hens Petition Competition!

Make your voice heard, help hens and win prizes, all at the same time!

We want the Government to free hens from cages by banning all caged hen farming in New Zealand. Hens are clever, curious and social birds. Outside, they love to spend their days scratching for food, dustbathing and basking in the sun.

We need you to gather signatures for a petition asking the Government to free hens and ban cages. SAFE will give all of the signatures you have gathered to the New Zealand Parliament. Your opinions matter! And as a bonus, you will be in to win some fantastic prizes in our Free Hens from Cages Petition Competition.

How to enter:

Talk to your friends, family, classmates and teachers and tell them about the lives of hens in New Zealand and why you think they deserve better. Collect signatures on the petition sheet from people who want to free hens from cages
