Male Chicks Slowly Suffocate in the Trash - Video Exposing The Egg Industry
In this video we can see how workers throw all the male chicks to garbage bags, to slowly suffocate. The male chicks are calling for their mothers, but none of them will know what it's like to be loved.
Sadly, killing all the male chicks is an essential part of egg production and it happens all around the world. This occurs because these male chicks will not lay eggs, and since meat farms don't want them. From a business point of view, these male chicks are useless.
Workers in hatcheries sort out all the male chicks by looking at the length of certain feathers. The female chicks are sold to egg farms, whereas the male chicks are killed in various ways. Among the common methods for killing male chicks are grinding them up alive or suffocating them in garbage bags.
The hatchery in the video was filmed by Animals Now in Israel.
