reported by Aussie Farms (click here for video from the rescue):

"On 19 July 2016, Animal Liberation NSW and Aussie Farms released the first-ever Australian footage of male chicks being ground-up alive as waste products of the egg industry (

Two days later in an action organised by Aussie Farms, around 100 activists converged on the facility near Bendigo, Victoria, where the industry-standard practice had been filmed, with 21 entering the property to shut down the macerator and draw attention to the inherent cruelty of the egg industry. 5 activists chained themselves to the conveyor belts and other equipment.

Over 150 male chicks were rescued from certain death and will now live long, happy lives with experienced carers."
