Imagine a factory that throws away half of its production. This is how the egg-production industry works.
Every year, commercial hatcheries around the world produce 15 billion chicks: 7.5 billion are females that can lay eggs,
and 7.5 billion are males that have no commercial use and are therefore exterminated after they hatch. This practice
involves major animal suffering and abuse, and a huge waste of energy, water, incubation space, and production
capacity that could be used to ensure better nutritional security globally.
