Video sheds light on Iowa egg hatchery

Posted:

 

SPENCER (AP)--An undercover video shot by an animal rights group at an Iowa egg hatchery shows workers discarding unwanted chicks by sending them alive into a grinder. It also shows other chicks falling through a sorting machine to die on the factory floor. Chicago-based Mercy for Animals says it shot the video at Hy-Line North America's hatchery in Spencer over a two-week period in May and June. The video was obtained yesterday by The Associated Press.
