    They really do throw the little chickies around.

    It's why I really like hatching my own or getting them from a breeder that hatches them.

    I would LOVE to see our little group grow to a million members and put those nasty hatcheries out of business. I would like stricter laws regarding inhumane. Probably won't happen in my life time. [​IMG]

    one thing I liked about the video was seeing how to feather sex my chickies [​IMG] but it makes me mad how rough they treat them.

    Wow they do throw/toss them around a lot ........... but they don't seem any worse for wear when the process is finished..... would never buy from a hatchery though........ or work in one as I would have to resuce them all!!

    Well the chicks seem to do just fine with it so it doesn't bother me a bit. Just shows that they are a bit tougher than ya think. I wouldn't have a problem at all with ordering from a hatchery.

    Quote:NO! Please don't do that just because of me! I don't think the chicks are hurt, it just looks wierd because we don't know how hardy they are.
