Shocking footage reveals the inhumanity of how chirping chicks are treated on the first day of their lives, processed like meat on an assembly line.
The footage shows how weak chick’s heads are torn off – while they are still alive – while the more unlucky ones are thrown in black bin liners without even being killed if they are not considered suitable for the meat industry.
The video, filmed secretly by an animal rights campaign group, shows them being packed into crates by the thousand and shut in dark cupboards to be stored.
