The SPCA came across an estimate of 2000 dumped chicks and eggs most of which had died although there were quite a few still hatching!
"We are investigating and trying to find the farmer who did this.
This is another wake-up call for consumers to buy free range and welfare friendly products even though they cost more, as these are the people who either supply the retailers with eggs directly or supply the suppliers who supply the retailers." - SPCA
