    that was awful to watch - those poor babies getting throw around like that - makes you wonder how many end up with broken legs, necks, wings - or how many many get killed [​IMG]

    That is horrible. I wonder how the little things make it?

    I will never support any hatcheries. I like hatching my own eggs. Even when the odds are against me I will always hatch my own

    I wonder...can all chicks be sexed that way or just certain breeds?

    Just certain breeds can be sexed like that.

    OMG! Those poor little chicks...what a cold way to come into the world. And I shutter to think of the ones that get stuck in the shell/chick seperator [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] What can you do about supply and demand though [​IMG]

    Quote:I'm with you. Hatching can be difficult and emotional but I think the wholesaling of little lives is just wrong.
