Baby Chicks Spared from Death
Chick culling is a process where male chicks are ground to death at hatcheries because they cannot produce eggs. This violent process will end soon, however, as United Egg Producer, which represents 95% of all eggs produced in the US, has pledged to eliminate chick culling by 2020. They instead will use in-ovo egg sexing, which determines the gender of chicks before they develop inside the egg and allows for other uses of male eggs before birth. The Humane League, a relatively new animal rights group, is responsible for the negotiations surrounding chicken culling and saving millions of chicks.
