This video was secretly recorded by the Association for the Protection of Animals, Animal Equality, and has gone viral with more than 30 million views. The video was filmed in an American factory.
The employees in the factory throw small animals from the box as if they were objects rather than living beings.
Those who are lucky to survive are then given growth hormones.
The chicks that survive the later stages of the process are then given vaccines and growth hormones so that they can reach the size of the sales market or farm eggs in just 40 days. Moreover, the roosters are separated from the future chickens and killed because they do not lay eggs and are not cost-effective.
Sometimes, their neck is broken or they are killed with gas. In certain cases, they are even thrown in the grinder. The British Department for Poultry has admitted that chickens are “euthanized” in a number of factories in Great Britain.
