THANK you for printing my letter in The Press of January 19, but you made an error.

You printed that we kill every year 945 million chickens, 18 million turkeys, 14 million ducks, which is correct.

Then you printed “because we don’t need them”.

This was incorrect. It should have read: “We also gas millions of male chicks because we don’t need them”.
