New Undercover Investigation: Chicks Ground Up Alive

Profile photo of Ryan-H

Posted September 1, 2009 by Ryan Huling

The Chicago-based group Mercy for Animals has just released a shocking new undercover investigation, which documents male chicks being ground up alive in an egg industry hatchery. You see, because male chicks don’t lay eggs—which means lost profits for the corporations—the industry doesn’t consider them worth keeping alive.

Of course, I could describe this inexcusable cruelty until I’m blue in the face, but the video says it all:


Pretty horrific, right? It’s important to note that this is a routine practice for both regular AND commercial free-range, cage-free, and organic eggs. Think free-range means cruelty-free? Think again.

What do you think: If you wouldn’t grind up chicks alive—is it any more acceptable to pay other people to do it for you?

    @ Phin

    So you support them grinding up babies while they’re still alive?
    What if they were human babies, with all the males being tossed down a chute into a grinder.
    And yes, maybe no one would care if it were cockroaches, but riddle me this — why would we mass produce cockroach eggs?

    What are they supposed to do with the chicks? Rehabilitate them? The only reason people care about this is because chicks are ‘cute’ if it were cockroaches, no one would give a shit. People are so altruistic and kind, saving all the cute animals for themselves.

    All I can say it that I want to vomit! I am physically sick after watching this video…. I am vegetarian and was considering strongly about being vegan this year. After watching this video I am not eating eggs again!!!
    The poor little broken bodies that were scalded while still alive and lived thru it will be nightmares for a long time for me :(
    I can not think of how heartless you have to be to do a job like this. These people have no compassion for any life. I hope they are treated like this when they are old and have no way or voice to fight back… years of slow painful deaths!!!

    You know, I understand that this is horrible and I’m not saying I condone it, but is it not possible that this is a bit loaded by PETA and everybody against it? I mean, there are so many things that could explain it.
    1. By grinding males up, they might be giving them the quickest death possible, because it would be done in no time.
    2. Maybe chicks do have nerve endings in their beaks, but they are newborns, and havent fully developed yet. Their brains are not fully grown, and therefore it stands to reason that their nerves would not be either.
    3. Have these organizations done psychological research on the development of chickens? unless they have done extensive enough research to tell if a chicken is psychologically scarred by a moment an hour after birth, then I do not know that they can truly talk about it.
    I am not supporting this, but I would call myself reasonable, and I know that PETA can get a bit emotional. The only way you can get a really accurate representation is if you remove that emotion, which is something PETA cannot do, because it runs on emotions. I am not against PETA, just against partial truths and ignorance.

    I am sobbing right now. Those workers have completly disassociated themselves from the fact that those chicks are living, breathing things that can feel pain as much as they can. They were JUST brought into the world and then put through that? It’s appauling. Let the the workers infants go through that same process and see if they feel anything for those killed and maimed.

    the people in these videos are absolutely disgusting how can they even live with themselves when they go home. isn’t it funny how they couldn’t care less that they’re throwing away lives for absolutely nothing, but if anyone ever even says anything bad about a human things go insane? or when a human is told they’re worth nothing eveyone has something to say while thousands of non-human animals are dying and being called worthless every single day?

Then finally, you are dumped into the grinder, but first you roll around a bit before getting grinded! Would you like that to happen to you? If you kill birds like that for a better profit, then you deserve to die like that, and then go to hell. Same for the people who invented those machines!

    This video is horrific. We have 5 pet hens. They are very social and friendly animals. Ours live in a nice large area and are treated like pets that we love. During the day they get free run of our property. I am vegetarian, but do eat their eggs. I am curious what vegans think of that. I don’t see it as exploiting them since they are our pets and they are going to lay the eggs anyway.

    I am so disheartened. Baby chicks are the most beautiful things alive. They bring such joy just to touch their furry bodies. I am disgusted with the people who own corporations who think only about profit. If male chicks aren’t of any use in their eyes, then why not donate these beautiful male chicks to organizations or people who are willing to take them in. Jezzz..A lot of us think that people are not worth keeping, but you don’t see us putting them through the grinder!

    I’m vegetarian; I hate the things they do to these poor animals. But when people ask how they can do this I believe that the answer is that in order to do their job they have twisted their perception of these chicks from living beings to material without feelings or a soul…

    Humans are terrible, disgusting creatures. We are the most horrible race on the planet. Animals kill in the wild to survive, but we kill just because we can. Chicks are such darling little things; they don’t deserve to be treated like that. The people who do these things deserve to be punished very harshly, even painfully for this bull. I hope they get theirs in the end. Those workers talk about them like they’re not living, breathing beings. It’s just f***ing sickening.

    Incredible, i am speechless. really makes me question everything. don’t know what the solution is. cruelty is inexcusable though. these workers are unconscious, desensitized, desperate, incapable of being in touch with their feelings. I once briefly worked in a chicken house in israel on a kubbitz , it was only for a few days but I could not eat or look at chicken for a year after. I guess that is what we need more of. Less disconnect with how the food gets to the supermarkets. The public must know where and how the food gets to them, that will be more than enough to get people thinking and feeling again.

    I can’t believe these people can do this for a living and actually feel good about themselves, go home, sleep at night, raise kids, go on about daily life like its no big deal that they are cruel murderers of helpless animals. Horrible, inexcuseable and down right gross. I will never eat another egg. All for profit..there must be somewhere these male chicks can go, but that means spending more money, which probably takes away from the lining of all the pockets of the board members for the Hatcheries. Evil evil people. I hate corporate a**holes who don’t give a crap about anything but money.

    I cried before i even finished reading the text. I still haven’t watched the video yet. All these years, I’ve been paying up to three dollars more per dozen eggs buying “cruelty free, free range, vegetarian fed” eggs, thinking, I was making a difference. After this article, I’ve vowed to find a replacement for eggs. I’m already a vegetarian for over thirty years, and within the last four, upscaled to vegan. Eggs is the last barrier. Animals are not hurting the earth, we are, People. We destroy the environment and torture animals. How do these people live with themselves?

    This is inhumane and wrong in so many ways. There is no need to Grind up male chicks just because they seem “worthless”. I myself am a meat eater who has tried to go vegetarian in the past. I am disgusted by the treatment of these animals. To all others who belive that just because we eat meat, it makes us the big bad enemy are wrong. There are those of us, like myself, who wish no harm livestock, poultry, etc. There are humane ways which will make sure the animals are not suffering like these poor chicks. This video shows us that everyone needs to keep up in standing up for animal rights.

    I’m not going to lie, I am not a vegan- nor am I a vegetarian. I tried once, though, for nearly a year. I have chrons disease, and although I love to eat healthy- if I eat nothing but fruits and veggies for any long period of time, I end up sicker than a dog. I was hospitalized 10 times in the 9 months that I gave up animal products. However, all of my food comes from a friend of my mother’s who lives in Sedro Wooley, Washington. He raises his own animals on all organic food, and has a very large vegetable farm. All the animals are happy, live FULL lives and yes- are eventually killed. But in a fast, and pain-free way. The chickens are not kept in pens, but roam freely, all the cows and pigs are in huge pastures. I do not feel guilty for eating this meat, I really don’t. I am physically unable to be a vegan- and all of you can try to say I’m making excuses for myself but I have DOCTOR ORDERS that state I need to eat lean meat inorder for my body to process food.
    This video is horrific- and it is the very reason I have turned away from factory-raised animals.

How can anyone with a heart stand by and support this, I can’t even imagine whats going on in the heads of the people who work at that factory. I sure hope they don’t have kids!
    And to anyone who says that “i could never be a vegetarian! I live in _______” I live in IOWA there are farms EVERYWHERE, I find a way to do it. There is no excuse except that you yourself aren’t willing to make the change.

    It makes me wonder what part of HUMANITY do these people give up to work for places like this. in their minds I’m sure they say you learn to seperate themselves, personally I never would or could. When these people commit such horrific acts just think of what it is teaching their children, that all life is worthless. take a look at the mother whos son put their family pet in a pillowcase and beat it to death (on video) she exclaimed ” it’s just a dog what’s the big deal” it goes to show you that when society thinks nothing of killing they raise killers of any sort when they have mind sets like that. All I can do is pray for these MINDLESS people, That think they cannot find a better job, It makes me wonder how they live, do they have friends and GOD forbid animals ” WHat I CALL PETS ” I love all life. I know GOD put all kind of life here on earth for a purpose, I do not think it was to be used like this. Even my Jewish friends still think their meat is killed in a compassionate nature, I urge them to visit your web site, Im sure they are afraid of what they will find for when asked they haven’t had the time to view it. Like most people out of sight out of mind that is why I call these people mindless killers, to make themselves feel better for killing they say “YOU HAVE TO SEPERATE YOURSELF” I say WHAT A COPOUT. Thankyou PETA for keeping me informed and changing the way I look at food, I did go veggie but had a few slips but am back on track. Who in their right mind would want to eat the meat that is killed in the videos I saw, not only the abuse but neglect, sores, diseases, It certainly has changed my views. Keep up the good work and keep me posted

    “Please remember these chicks when you sit down to your next meal” I agree that this is totally inhumane and all, but what i saw in the video im not simply going to sit down to eat and remember them while i go to eat. I’m not a vegetarian/vegan but this video wont convert me, but i now am firmly against these types of animal cruelties. I never knew that some these industries could do such sick heartless things to newborn animals, also to the workers, do they not have feelings? If ever i see any petitions or such things in my town against animal cruelty i will be joining in from now on.

    I understand how some people would be appalled by this. however to the people asking how some humans could bear to work these farms, you have to think of the circumstances these people are under. these people have families to support and thia is especially more difficult so long as the recession decreases. I’m not condoning the killings of these baby chicks. but I know what side I would pick if my family needs the money and that a big egg corporation is willing to pay me to do this.of course there are options, but many people do not have the same liberties that we do. ( perhaps instead of complaining and crying in on our butts in front of our computer screens we can think of different methods to deal with these unwanted chicks. they are not profitable and need to be sent else where.) until someone figures this out, I’m afraid that these chicks will continue to be wrongfully put to their deaths.

    I became a Vegan to loose weight and for my health first. I then learned about all this animal rights stuff and animal cruelty videos after trying to reachout to meet other Vegans. Of course it was horrifying!
    But.
    In order to eat meat, an animal has to die.
    Meateaters no matter how dumb they may act know this fact and will keep on eating meat after viewing these videos.
    Lets promote how HEALTHY a Vegan diet can be to one’s life also..
    Meateaters may be becoming desensitized by all these kinds of shock videos! It seems its only the Vegans who are shocked.

    yes that is the worst thing anyone could ever do to something so harmless and adorable.
    but i do disagree about the meateaters.
    just because they eat meat doesn’t make them a super terrible person.
    there will always be someone or some country that’ll eat meat so not eating it won’t save all the poor animals.
    they”ll keep on killing them but instead it”ll go in the trash or across the country.
    it. will. never. end.
    and guess what i’m a vegitarian but i disagree with how you treat people who do eat meat.
    hate the people who torture/kill and maime these poor animals.
    it’s hate and hate is not right. espically to people you don’t know anything about.

Do they think the little chickies don’t feel pain? And that it’s ok to be cruel to chickens because they are going to be food and not pets? And the people working there, how can they sleep at night?

Now when i hear that “oh i only eat free-range eggs they’re better.” I’m just going to vomit. man I’ve been vegan for two years now and I just never thought due to an interest in ignorance I suppose, that the organic and free range market practices would, or could even be, this horrific and despicable never again will I bend the rules of my house to accommodate meat eating friends never again.
    People who eat meat are careless and hateful not indoctrinated because my entire high school saw these videos and only 6 people became vegetarian claiming eggs cheese and milk were part of a healthy diet that they didn’t want to give up, even after I told them it was incorrect to think that they still didn’t care because “my family eats too much meat” I personally come from a family who the father of which prides himself in his “bad ass” meat whether it be smoked or BBQ’ed, because i live in Texas it’s apparently harder to be vegan, BULLSHIT! quit lying to make yourself feel better you know it’s murder and you know it’s wrong.
