Hatchery Investigation - The Origin of Chicken Meat & Eggs
Witness the shocking findings of a thorough investigation into hatcheries 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. The images seen in this video show the standard practices that take place in hatcheries all over the world.
Hatcheries that work for the egg and meat industries kill many of the newly born chicks by grinding them up alive or suffocating them. When breeding chicks for the egg industry, the hatchery will kill all the male chicks since they can't lay eggs. When breeding chicks for the meat industry, the hatchery will kill all the overly deformed and weak chicks. This happens because the breed used for meat has very poor genetics that cause many of the chicks to be born crippled or deformed.
