Is this the Grossest PETA US Ad Yet?
Our colleagues at PETA US have come up with an ad that visualises just what eggs really are: chicken menstruation. It is a thought that makes us cringe, but chicken periods are exactly what you’re eating every time you fry, scramble or bake with eggs. We’ll spare you the full ad, but we’ve included a censored version below. If you are brave enough, visit PETA US’ website to see the full version.

As well as being gross, eggs are cruel. Birds suffer crippling leg injuries from standing on wire cage floors 24 hours a day, seven days a week, until they are killed. Their bones are brittle, both from forced inactivity and because calcium is leached from their bodies to produce eggs. Many more hens suffer from painful injuries when they’re ripped from their cages, thrown into transport crates and shipped to slaughter. Without even a shred of straw for comfort, all the hen’s natural instincts – including nesting, perching, scratching and pecking – are denied. These birds never get the chance to breathe fresh air, feel the sun on their backs, build nests, raise their young, or do anything else that is natural and important to them.
