Ask agriculture ministers of member states
to support a ban on chick and duckling culling
in eu law
It is estimated that every year in the EU, hundreds of millions of male chicks from the laying hens industry and tens of millions of female ducklings from the foie gras industry are culled, because they are considered as an industry byproduct which does not generate profit.
This slaughter is not necessary : methods to select the gender long before hatching have been developed and are already implemented in some Member States. In Germany and France for example, the authorities decided to ban chick culling.
With the ongoing revision of the European animal welfare legislation, we have a unique chance to extend this ban to all the EU, and to include ducklings to it.
