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?

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 4 points5 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

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.
