To stop male chicks from being killed by maceration (ground alive)

SAFE have reported that male chicks who are no use to the egg industry? Raised in hatcheries and deemed unwanted ‘by products’ over 3 million of them every year in NZ are sent down a conveyor belt and killed by maceration (ground alive) or gassed to death.

This extreme violence of being ground alive needs to be stopped. There needs to be some empathy for these animals and I urge you to please put a stop to this practice. Having a gas section without the conveyor belt to ensure they are dead before getting ground would at least be a kind way of ending their lives.

Please change laws and protect these animals from the extreme suffering they endure at present.
