Live Baby Chicks Used as Packing Peanuts!

Ideal Poultry Breeding Farms, a company that sells
and ships live birds, uses live baby chicks as packing material! According to
complainants and Ideal Poultry’s own website, male chicks are included as
filler in live shipments so that the birds who were ordered can be kept warm
during transit. Sadly, many of these filler chicks reportedly arrive dead or
die within hours of arrival. One caller who adopted several ailing filler chicks
from a neighbor contacted PETA with a heartbreaking story: She tended, fed, and
watered her chicks with a dropper throughout their first night, but she could
only watch as each one slowly died.

We reached out to Janet Crouch, the owner of Ideal Poultry, but our concerns were brushed off with the response that male chicks are used for warmth and to take up extra space in the box.

Your voice is needed! Please contact Crouch and let her know that
live animals are not disposable and that using them as shipping material is inhumane!
Please urge her to stop shipping live animals or, at the very least, to use
heating packs in place of live chicks.
