PE01797: End live chick culling

Rural Affairs

Petitioner: Kirsten MacQuarrie


Date Lodged: 10 March 2020

Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to ban the maceration of newborn male chicks and set a deadline to end all live chick culling in the egg industry.

Petition History:

Do you believe that the mechanical destruction of live newborn birds is acceptable in modern-day Scotland?

Do you want Scotland to be at the forefront of best practice for animal welfare within the United Kingdom?

End this now

These babies are killed in a very cruel way. How anyone can take part in this cruelty is beyond my understanding.

Not acceptable, however you look at it. Would we think twice if it was puppies or kittens?
