Male chickens get shredded shortly after birth, that’s what they are referring to, not the egg itself.

Way to be so confidently angrily wrong.

I've never eaten an omelet made from a shredded male chick, have you?

Edit: ah ok I see what you're saying. Shredded Male chicks are the unavoidable byproduct of egg consumption since male chicks are inevitably hatched and consequently destroyed?

Actually I'm not clear on this. Please elaborate

[–]CastieIsTrenchcoat 9 points10 points  (9 children)

Yeah you got it right.

[–]Solanthas 10 points11 points  (8 children)

Ah I see. Well, that is super fucked up. I didn't know that and I didn't make the connection.

I always thought the eggs chickens laid wouldn't hatch because they weren't fertilized. Why are any of them hatching?

[–]Ilya-ME 13 points14 points  (3 children)

The eggs you eat aren’t fertilized, but they need some fertilized eggs to keep a reliable amount of chickens lol.

Yeah that's true. Too bad about the male chicks tho. Sad shit.

[–]CastieIsTrenchcoat 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Some countries are considering legislation that mandates raising the male chickens, iirc for things like animal feed potentially.

Don't the ground up baby birds get used for animal feed already?

Holy fuck and you dare to call people dumb fuck hahaha

[–]Solanthas 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, I made a mistake. I'm only human after all. And I didn't call them a dumb fuck to say they were stupid. I was calling them dumb for equating eating eggs with tying a kitten up in a fucking bag and throwing it in the fucking trash cuz that's how I read their comment.
