Essay #10:

Little baby chicks may yet still be un-caring-ly murdered to death by egg hatcheries.

Please help save each and every one of all our nation's beloved precious baby chicks who may yet still be being mis-treated and murdered.

On the Mercy for Animals website , , a while back it once described how little baby chicks in a Hy-Line Hatchery in Iowa, and possibly elsewhere as well are, after they are freshly hatched from their egg shells, then dumped uncaringly and impersonally onto a dangerous-to-them, fast-moving conveyor belt after being fed to a mechanical separator machine designed to separate the newly hatched chicks from their egg shells.  Sometimes they are injured and/or possibly even killed by the fast-moving conveyor belt and/or by the mechanical chicks/egg shells separator machine.

Then, after being impersonally dumped and separated from their shells and then onto the fast-moving conveyor belt, there are human workers, called "sex-ers" or "sex-ors" who sort out the chicks out by their sex.

The female baby chicks can grow up to become productive adult egg-laying hens.  However, then later, if the number of those female adult egg-laying hens placed in each cage is too large, while each cage is too small for them to even flex their wings in; because of that overcrowdedness, which might cause the adult egg-laying hens to peck at each other and to injure each other in fights that would occur because of such overcrowdedness stresses; then those female baby chicks that thus might later grow older and larger and then to fight with each other or injuriously peck at each other because of such overcrowding stresses as adults; they then are therefore as baby chicks sent to the "debeaking" machine, where the baby chicks’ sensitive little beaks are either impersonally chopped off by uncaring chopping blades, or un-pityingly seared off by a laser.

Allegedly, such a practice causes much pain to those little female baby chicks, both during the chopping off or searing off procedures; and afterwards as well.  In other words, there ostensibly thus is caused both severe acute pain, and also chronic pain to those little baby chicks when they are debeaked.  Apparently, such debeaking is all done without any anesthetic or pain reliever at all being given to the little baby chicks.

The male baby chicks however, cannot, then or later either, obviously, lay eggs.  Neither are they regarded as being able to cost-effectively grow up into sell-able chicken meat, either; (as if that were something for a little baby chick to aspire to, though). They therefore are then fed to a rotating corkscrew device, funneling them backwards into a meat-grinder device, which apparently just grinds them up alive without any anesthetic or pain reliever at all being given to them, either.

They are thereby torn to shreds and thus butchered to death, as if it did not matter.

Apparently, believe it or not, that procedure, called "instant euthanasia", has been endorsed by veterinarians and scientists.

May God have mercy on us.

Perhaps legislation could be advocated to stop that horrific mis-treatment and heinously horrible murdering.

And/or, perhaps goodwilled, life-reverencing individuals and/or groups with enough money and desire to do so could offer to purchase some or all of those little baby chicks from such egg hatcheries if, for example, such and such certain essential conditions are met to provide for the secure humane treatment of such baby chicks; with both humane treatment concerning the hatchery environment in the process of the eggs being incubated and hatched; and humane treatment in the process of the little baby chicks being hopefully humanely separated from their shells, and then hopefully humanely and lovingly cared for before they are transferred; and then concerning humane treatment concerning transportation from the hatchery and transportation to and their residence in their thusly prospectively purchased and provided for, prospectively new, and hopefully agape'-loving, and caring, and killing-not-believed-in-nor-engaged-in homes and other agape'-love-believed-in-and-practiced prospective chicks' residences.

And/or, perhaps humane alternative egg hatcheries and farms could be formed; with much more humane beliefs and practices concerning the compassionate care of animals;

Those humane alternative egg hatcheries and humane alternative farms, instead of harming the chicks or harming whatever animals might be involved, for whatever supposedly good reason:

Instead of not caring enough for the animals involved, then instead they should have consideration for the well-being of those animals, and agape'-lovingly produce healthy little baby chicks and humanely help them to grow older to become chickens with loving family lives as we human beings hopefully sometimes have; being allowed to grow up to have families, and to have their offspring to grow up to have families; without murdering or harming anyone of them, whatsoever.

Plausibly therefore,  a Farmers' Code of Ethics of some good kind that would encourage the agape'-loving and compassionate life-protecting care of farm animals could be drafted up as a document and then advocated to farmers and to the general Public; and then if believed in by farmers and/or by the general Public, which then such said Farmers' Code of Ethics then could voluntarily be subscribed to by such farmers and/or by the general Public if they would so choose to do; those who might be desiring to participate in attempting to follow such guidelines.

Thus then, after such prospective hopeful rescuing of those female little baby chicks from such unkind mis-treatment, and in the case of the males, after those male little baby chicks have prospectively and hopefully been rescued from a very unkind and certain death, then possibly all the little baby chicks could be given to agape'-loving and compassionately-caring-for but not-believing-in-killing-nor-engaging-in-killing-nor-harming-in-any-way, schools and animal sanctuaries, and farms, and homes: to allow the little baby chicks to live and grow up older to have families which also could hopefully be free from such threats to their well being and from such threats to their very lives.

Those baby chicks and their prospective resultant families should definitely be rescued from that unkind and evil mis-treatment and heartless murdering.

Seemingly relatedly, a man named Thomas Jefferson was instrumental in the drafting and adopting of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom of January 16, 1786 by the Virginia General Assembly of the State of Virginia of Colonial America; and he helped establish the University of Virginia; and was given the task of authoring the United States Declaration of Independence in about 1775, which was ratified on July 4, 1776, possibly by the Continental Congress; and later he was elected by the United States of America population to become the 3rd President of the United States of America.

Here is a potentially related quote of what was said by that Thomas Jefferson, in Query 18 in Notes on the State of Virginia (1781-1785):

"Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever."

May Almighty Lord God Jehovah and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ give us more of His Holy Spirit and help each and every one of us all to have mercy on each and every one of all of God's beloved precious creatures, on both animal beings and on human beings and on whomever else beings as exist as much as can be agape'-lovingly and wisely managing so to have mercy on, and to help, included; and may God have mercy on each and every one of us all.

Thank you Almighty Lord God Jehovah of holiness and righteousness and justice and mercy and faith  and salvation and forgiveness of sins and agape' love towards God and towards ourselves and towards others.

Remember the saying that is allegedly from the website with the URL website address of: :

"God will defend any nation or individual that turns to Him."

Also, remember The Holy Bible verses of Romans 10:9-13:

Romans 10:8.   "But what saith it?  The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;"

Romans 10:9. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

Romans 10:13.  "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." 

For a more complete quoting of those verses in the context of the other verses of that holy scriptures text portion; then please look up Romans 10:1 to Romans 10:13; either in a paper copy of the Holy Bible, or on an internet Bible such as the Blue Letter Bible ; with website URL address ;

Or look those verses up in whatever other kind of Holy Bible that there may be available to you; or that may be good to avail yourself of. 

For your convenience, however, here is a copy of that Holy Bible (KJV) portion of Romans 10:1-13, from the Blue Letter Bible :
