1,000 Tiny Chicks Found Abandoned in a Field

“Chick culling,” as it’s called, is something the egg industry doesn’t like to talk about. And when one learns what the process entails, it’s no wonder as to why. Also called “chick disposal,” it involves shredding male baby chicks alive as they are deemed to be worthless to the industry because they will not produce eggs when mature. While most commercial chick producers continue to do this (in all countries except Germany) behind closed doors and in secrecy, it seems one producer decided an alternative solution would be more appropriate and left more than 1,000 chicks to die in a field.
