Stop male chicks dying with "male kind" eggs.

This petition had 3 supporters

Currently when a new brood of egg laying hens is born the male chicks are set aside and cruelly killed.

A new kind of egg category called "male kind" eggs would eliminate this, keeping the chicks alive.

Egg producers would have to house the male chicks and keep them fed raising the cost of an egg by double. In return the eggs would be marked as "male kind" and consumers would know that no chicks have been killed to produce their eggs.

I see this as being the next step up from free range.
