If you have ever bought a “frying hen” in the grocery store, you know that it’s the hens, not the roosters, who make up the food chain of chicken meat products.
Rooster meat is tough and stringy, and the only roosters that are kept by chicken farmers are the breeding roosters, and a few roosters to satisfy the market for “Rooster fries”, the delicacy of deep-fried rooster testicle’s:
Rooster testicles are good eating
Because all chickens used for meat and eggs are female, it’s not good hatch into the world as a male chick.
Poultry in motion
Did you know that over a billion baby chicks are grinded-up alive each year?
Once hatched, male chicks have only a few hours to live before being sorted on a conveyor belt, and being ground-up alive:
Male chickens stream off of the conveyor belt into a high-speed meat grinder
In this video we see that this plant kills 150,000 baby male chicks, each day, by tossing them alive into a high speed grinder:
This reminds me of the Saturday Night Live skit "The Bassamatic" . . .
It says that 150,000 make chickens are humanely killed every day, just at this processing plant.
Animal husbandry is a cruel business . . .
