Rude Awakening

It’s a rough beginning for a chick hatched at a professional hatchery.
Wow, can’t even imagine how scary it must be to go through all this…

  1. That’s one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen.

      What makes it even worse is knowing they are probably going to mass production egg farms where they will live a horrible SHORT life. As for the roosters… an even worse fate. 😦

    wow… hmm… wondering if all hatcheries are like this… poor babies!

  3. This was disturbing and hard to watch. It’s sad that us humans are so cruel. 😦

    Really sad way to treat newborn chickens, how did we end up here.

  5. WOW! This is horrible! I did not know…
    I have raised used a broody hen to incubate and raise chicks before. They were the most gentle and sweet chicks I have EVER had. I can’t help but wonder if it has something to do with bringing them into this world naturally and GENTLY.
    Thanks for sharing even if it was very hard to watch this video.
