I received a reply from Commonsense Organics (they operate a large retail store for organic produce in Wellington NZ) regarding my egg issues.

Hi there,

All our egg suppliers buy their one day old chicks from companies which
practice the act of destroying male chicks.

Unfortunately, we haven't been presented with any other options.

So it seems likely that I won’t find any option for egg production that doesn’t involve killing male chicks. :-(

I’m going to make plans to work towards moving to an egg-free vegetarian diet, or even a vegan diet. My biggest problem is that I love cheese so much, I’m going to conduct some further research into dairy farming, to see if cheese is produced in what I consider a moral way or not.
