This is very disheartening on the way they treat the chicks as if they are objects, not living organisms. I’m not sure what we can do to stop this from happening, but millions of male chicks die each year because of this. I don’t think that the mere act of not buying eggs will help since we will need a great deal of people to do the same, in order for it to make a difference. I’m sure there must be some kind of petition going around about this. If there is, send it my way!
Maybe buying eggs that are from free-range chickens would help but I think there are loose regulations on what is considered free-range chickens.
What can companies do instead of killing all these male chicks? I know some people would want to raise some chickens as pets or for food in the future. However, there is millions of chicks each year so I’m not sure how that would work.
