A few nights ago the ALF attacked one of the largest hatcheries for the egg industry in Denmark.
A well coordinated attack by activists on one of the largest hatcheries for the egg industry in Denmark. Over 20,000 fertilized eggs where kept in a cooling room, which prevents the eggs from developing into chicks. Fertilized eggs are stored at around 17 degrees Celsius for up to 3 weeks, before being moved to the “pre-incubators”, where they are kept for 18 days at around 37 degrees Celsius. At 37 degrees, they develop into chicks, before being moved to incubators the last 3 days, where the eggs hatch.
Once hatched, the males would be gassed to death, while the females would be abused for their bodies for over a year, before also being gassed to death.
Not only did this action cause the hatchery economic damage and disrupt their industry, it also prevented over 20,000 chickens from being born into a terrible life.
