    I live I colorado. I want to get a petition going to change the governments definition of free range. The chickens are crammed into small cages. Lets get a real petition going. I want to change the definition so the animals raised by big industries can have happy healthy lives

    This battle is already being fought and kinda already won. Production chickens can now walk around, freely. If you are concerned, BE the CHANGE you WANT to see, adopt some production hens and give them a life they didn't have.

    Also note, the world isn't what you think it is, the big picture reveals what has to be the way it is to sustain the way we live. Production chickens have never lived anywhere than where they are at, for them, where they are is life. They are happy with their lives because its the only one they've got to live. You can change that though, by adopting retired hens.

    You can't take out the industry, and you won't want to, because too many things are tied to production, think of all the people that would be affected. The farm workers, the owners, the stores, the facility builders, their families, the truck drivers, the people being fed. Did you ever think of the people who make the cages? They provide the places for chickens to be raised, if the bad cages they provide aren't there and chicken friendly ones are, change is inevitable.
