151 Chicken Rejects
I read something a little disturbing this morning. I found out that when chicks hatch they are graded right away. The ones that don't pass the grade because they aren't healthy enough, wont grow fast enough, produce enough meat, or are off in any way are rejected. What is the worst that can happen with rejection you say? Well being tossed into a mechanical grinder is the fate of these chicks. It is quite horrid and inhumane. Even the ancient Greeks didn't treat their ill formed children in such a cruel manner.
