Male chicks are killed by the thousands in egg laying farms, and in terrible ways: including suffocation, being gassed to death or being minced alive by machines. We have seen chickens being held upside down by their legs, looking scared, frail and sick in cages transporting them, even had them butchered before our eyes to get fresh meat.
But we have turned our eyes away, hoping that if we don't see their suffering, it is not happening.
But the do suffer, with painful fractured limbs, bodies heavy with hormones to make them heavier (and more expensive) with underdeveloped organs, skin and lung diseases. in a lifespan that last's all of 6 months.
Don't turn away, see these pictures to see what that life which we have no value for, actually endures. There is no one to judge you, no one to say you are right or wrong by feeling empathy, guilt or even thinking that this is the way.
But if you care, and do feel a pang of conscience....please consider if this much suffering is worth one little snack or meal.
