  • For every egg-laying hen confined in a battery cage, there is a male chick that was killed at the hatchery. Male chicks of egg laying breeds are of no economic value. They may be thrown in trashcans where they are suffocated or crushed under the weight of others. Another common method used to dispose of unwanted male chicks is grinding them up alive.
