Inhumane treatment of hens Laying hens are routinely debeaked without anaesthesia when young to prevent fighting.
It is also argued that the procedure causes life-long chronic pain and discomfort and decreased ability to eat or drink.
Debeaking is said to being as painful as for a human's fingertips being cut off. A common practice among hatcheries is the mass-slaughter of newly-born male chicks of egg laying breeds.
They don't lay eggs, and do not grow fast enough to be profitable for meat.
Hence, they are usually culled
(mass killed, for example, put into grinding machines) an ability to meet the demand of eggs in Singapore Singapore
