Ms Rosenthal:

Thank you for introducing Assembly Bill A00058. Although I am not from New York, I fully support the ending of chick-hatching projects everywhere. They are inherently inhumane, not just for the chicks involved, but also for the human children.

I have attached a statement of my professional opinion on chick-hatching projects (chick_hatching_projects_statement_veterinarian_nedim_c_buyukmihci.pdf). If this may be of use to you, please use it freely.
