The new “NO-Kill” eggs to hit the German supermarkets

Scientists have finally found a way to finally end the annual live shredding of billions of male chicks from laying hen breeds worldwide. With a new technology helps to determine the sex of the chick before hatching.


“In modern poultry farming, humans have bred chickens for one of two purposes: to produce eggs or meat. Yet half of all the animals bred for this purpose are considered unusable. Male chicks lay no eggs and don’t grow fast enough to justify the cost of feeding them up for meat and they are culled”.

Seleggt Managing Director Dr. Ludger Breloh comments: “If you can determine the sex of a hatching egg you can entirely dispense with the culling of live male chicks,”

The “No-Kill” eggs are now being distributed in the German supermarkets as a first wave of the product.
