Dear MEL Topic Readers,

France to ban culling of unwanted male chicks by end of 2021

If a chick is born male, his life most likely ends before long. That’s because male chickens are economically unwanted. Male chicks neither grow as fast as nor lay eggs like hens do. Each year, while billions of hens are used in egg and poultry farming, a similar number of male chicks are slaughtered either by gas or grinders as soon as they are sorted after birth. So, most chickens living on the planet are hens. No gender equality for chicks whatsoever.  

France is now taking a new step to end this culling practice after birth. They announced to ban this mass killing of newborn chicks by the end of next year with an expectation that new technologies are going to be developed to identify the gender before hatching. That sounds less inhumane than killing chicks after hatching. Selective hatching, in short.

Read the article and learn about if human laws supersede the law of nature.
