This is a picture of a debeaking machine. The newborn chicks (only female, the male ones are useless to the Egg-industry and are therefor ground up alive and fed to other chickens) are attached to the machine and a small laser makes an incision to disconnect blood and -nerves. The tip of the beak will fall off after a couple of days. The industry claims that this is completely painless, which of course isn’t true as the beak of birds are full with sensitive nerve endings. If you find this cruel and unethical, then please refrain from consuming eggs (or any other animal derived product).
