We are getting close to butchering a few cockerels. Our first flock is getting close to laying age and of our 11 chickens we have 5 cockerels (which is 3-4 too many considering the number of hens we have). I was wondering if shooting the chicken in the head is a possible butchering method. Maybe this sounds silly to everyone who is in the know, but we are newbies to chickens. Still, we are a hunting family so I asked my husband and he said 'why not'. Now I am trying to figure out if there is a why not. Thanks for all responses.
