Did your eggs come from tortured hens? If you buy from Redner’s Markets, the answer is likely yes. Competitors of Redner’s Markets, including Walmart, Giant Eagle, and Safeway, have pledged to eliminate cruel cages, yet Redner’s Markets still allows its egg suppliers to cram hens into cages so small the birds can barely move. This is animal cruelty no company with morals should support.

Dear Mr. Redner,

Redner’s Markets has long been a leader among independent grocers in the Northeast. But by failing to switch to a totally cage-free egg supply chain, your company is ignoring the public’s calls for increased animal welfare and falling behind its many competitors who have already made cage-free commitments.

Egg-laying hens confined in cages are crammed into areas so small they can’t walk, spread their wings, or engage in other natural behaviors. Birds become trapped and horrifically mangled in cage wires or under feed trays. Dead hens are left to rot among the living. This is animal cruelty no company with morals should support.

That's why Walmart, Giant Eagle, Safeway, and so many others have already pledged to eliminate cruel cages from their egg supply chains. It is now time Redner’s Markets followed suit and adopted a cage-free policy for all eggs sold in its stores. As an independent grocery leader, Redner’s Markets has both the power and the ethical responsibility to reduce the suffering of millions of birds each year.

Please take immediate action to address this issue by adopting a 100 percent cage-free policy, including an aggressive phase-in timeline, for all eggs sold in your stores.

Thank you.

Thank you for speaking up for the animals!

Eggstreme Cruelty and Neglect

Stuffed in Cages

Hens used for eggs are crammed into wire cages so small the birds can’t walk, spread their wings, or engage in other natural behaviors.

Trapped and Trampled

Many birds become trapped and painfully mangled in the cage wire or under the feed trays. Without assistance, they sadly suffer and die.

Rotting Corpses

Dead hens are forgotten and left to rot alongside birds still laying eggs for human consumption.

Reduced to Cogs

Deprived of any comfort, these intelligent, sensitive animals are treated as mere egg-producing machines.

Explore the Hidden Lives of Hens

Just like most animals, hens like to stay clean. They do this by using their wings to pass dust from the ground through their feathers, shaking the dust off, and then repeating. This “dust bathing” prevents oil buildup, skin irritation, and disease.

Although chickens are highly social animals, they also like their privacy. When ready to lay eggs, most hens prefer to be solitary nesters. This is driven by the hens’ instinct to hide their eggs from predators.

Chickens are highly intelligent animals with excellent memories. Studies show chickens can recognize the faces of up to 100 individual birds. Like dogs, chickens have even been known to learn and respond to their names.

The best way for individual consumers to help end this cruelty is to leave animals off their plates.
