There are no machines being tested to detect male eggs, but in Australia where they kill 10 million male chicks a year, they are working on a way to breed only female eggs. It may become the way of the future.

At the very least, instead of grinding them alive, what about using the dry ice so they just fall asleep. Not ideal, but more humane than being ground alive.

I love all those Baby chicks and it broke my Heart to watch the cruel conveyor belt/grinding machine snuff out these cheeping innocent babies...I would love to give these so-called workers a taste of their own medicine, to see what the chicks went thru!! Someone get me Human live ammo-only then can they realize when their hands are all bloodied up after the grinding machine and Beak Slicers have done their dirty deeds!! Are we that SICK OF A NATION/CONTINENT/SPECIES to be doing this.....There has to be a GODDAMN BETTER WAY!! How about just leaving the eggs to be eaten as eggs?? or, let them all hatch and grow up and live on a farm, somewhere...I use to have chickens, and they are intelligent and loving!! They would follow me around and I could randomly pick them up and kiss them -all the while they would gently cluck in my arms and close their eyes in contentment, while I would KISS,Kiss,Kiss-they were my babies....I wish I had a HUGE farm again, where I would rescue all these chicks, and let them live out their lives, in a loving safe enviroment....Its sooooooooooooooooo,Bloody Heartbreaking....Alexandra Marcella Manolesco-Ami

it is disgusting how creul and heartless poeple are. you would think the workers doing this cruel practice would revolt and demand a better way to kill the chicks. it is disgusting that humans find eating animals ethical to begin with.

if humans would just realize that eating animals is not ethical, but cruel and barbaric we wouldnt have these horrid cruel practices going on.

Thank you so much Cher!
I have to add something important that is never mentioned: Almost all bakery goods contain eggs.Almost all companies use eggs in their cookies and snack cakes such as Hostess,Little Debbie etc. Most premade potato salads and macaroni salads etc. contain eggs. Albumen is an egg product. For us vegans if we want a "bad" snack we have to make it ourselves or not buy these products at all ! Check all the ingredients in everything you buy you will be surprised how far animal cruelty goes!
