    That kind of makes me not want to buy from McMurray. They were just chucking those chicks all over.

    Quote:I am sure they all are about the same they don't seem to be hurting the chicks and after sending so many million chicks down chutes they probably start getting a little callous. I don't know how I would be able to do that 8 hours a day 5 days a week without becoming a little thick skinned. Could it be done a little better or with a little more sensativity? I don't know.

    I just wonder where the Chute went that carried the little cockerels. I don't think they have buyers for all the Layer baby roos, not good for meat and just need a few for the people that order them.......

    The roos get gassed and sent to zoos and wildlife rehabilitation centers. Trust me.

    Yeah, I was trying to find last night's episode (a new one about a chicken farm?) and came across that one. That show keeps me cracking up. I love watching the outtakes and bloopers [​IMG]

    Last night's show was a rerun from last season.

    All large hatcheries handle chicks pretty much the same way.

    Please do not use this thread to start flaming the hatcheries.

    rerun? Oh man. I guess I didn't miss out on it then.

    Yeah, I've been to a couple hatcheries and this is pretty standard handling, and as you could see from the video, they had Millions of happy fuzzbutts so they must be doing something right [​IMG]
