Fighting for chickens

Billions of chickens are kept in tiny cramped cages without enough room to even spread their wings. Many of these chickens live in a space that is less than half the size of a sheet of standard sized paper per hen... that's only 67 square inches to live! 

Now there is a new bill in Congress called HR 3798, or the Egg Bill, which aims to double the amount of space for hens in factory farms. This comes on the heels of several victories in the fight against gestation crates for pigs.

These actions have many people hoping that the Factory Farming Industry is starting to realize that people will stand up and fight against animals being treated cruelly.

Jane Velez-Mitchell sat down with Farm Sanctuary's Bruce Freidrich to talk about the impact this bill could have.

For more on this story watch Jane Velez-Mitchell weeknights at 7pm ET on HLN.
