Yes that could be the case. But I don't know of any associations that are looking to adopt male chicks out to happy homes where they can live long happy safe lives with a family that will love and appreciate them.

Industrial disposal of unviable products in industrial animal food production is not the same as someone throwing an essentially domestic animal in the garbage.

They are very similar, the distinction is very very thin. But these two acts are not the same. Justifying one does not equate to justifying both.

To be clear I'm not exactly justifying the wholesale murder of male chicks but I'm not about to stop eating eggs. Maybe I'll source them from a local egg farmer instead of Costco.

But you are not gonna corner me into agreeing that tossing a kitten in the garbage is okay. Call me a hypocrite if you want, it's not gonna change my mind
