Male chicks are still being tortured in the USA. End live shredding now!

France recently banned the shredding of baby male chicks who aren't considered "useful" as egg-laying hens. It's huge progress for millions of severely abused birds.

But in the USA, the United Egg Producers – the corporate trade group, who represents 95 percent of all hatcheries – refused to follow France's lead.

They recently told the Washington Post: "A workable, scalable solution is not yet available."

That's unacceptable. If France can do it, we can do it too!  But we need your petition signature to end this barbaric practice:

  • Live baby birds, up to 3 days old, are thrown away into massive blenders
  • Some are even suffocated in bags while fully conscious
  • Male chicks are considered "waste" just because they can't lay eggs for profit

Let's be clear: baby male chicks aren't waste. They deserve humane treatment and loving care!

Full Circle Farm Sanctuary will continue to educate consumers about farmed animal suffering. But we can't do it alone.

Sign our petition: end male chick shredding in the USA and demand accountability from Big Ag!
