Horrifying Hatcheries: the truth about what happens to ‘unwanted’ male chicks in the British egg industry
Warning: this video contains graphic footage that viewers may find upsetting:
For the first time ever in the UK, Viva! has lifted the lid on the secretive world of the egg hatchery. Our shocking investigation has just made headlines in the Daily Mail, Telegraph, Mirror and The Express and for the first time you can view the shocking reality of what happens to male chicks – whose only crime is that they are the wrong sex to lay eggs. Donate to ensure we can carry on exposing the brutal truth behind animal farming in Britain today.
Between 30-40 million of them are killed every year in Britain, by either being thrown alive into electric mincers or by being gassed in their thousands. This is a needless destruction of life to an unimaginable scale – and all to bring eggs to our tables. It happens in all egg production: from the most intensive through to organic farming.
The only solution is to stop eating eggs and go vegan. Viva! can help: www.viva.org.uk/goingvegan.
