Chicken Hatchery - The Origin of Chicken Meat & Eggs
A chicken hatchery is one of the most horrific places on earth. Witness the shocking findings of a thorough investigation into a standard chicken hatchery that breed chicks for both the meat industry and the egg industry.
This video from Animal Equality received nearly 40 million views on Facebook before it was censored for showing the disturbing reality. The images seen in this video reveal the standard practices that take place in chicken hatcheries all over the world.
Chicken hatcheries that breed the chicks used by meat and egg farms, kill many of the newly born chicks by grinding them up alive, suffocating them or other extremely violent methods.
When breeding chicks for the egg industry, the hatchery will kill all the male chicks since they won't lay eggs. This means that about 50% of chicks that hatch in these hatcheries are violently killed on their first day of life!
When breeding chicks for the meat industry, the hatchery will kill all the overly deformed and weak chicks. This happens because many of the chicks who belong to the breed used by the meat industry (called "broiler") are born with various deformities.
