Sooo...this is a controversial subject and a hard one to deal with. I have a hen who is a pet, that is not doing well. My husband and I don't want her to suffer anymore. Sooo... I have read on a post somewhere that alcohol was used to sedate their chicken before hand. Does anybody have any experience with this? Can alcohol kill a chicken if given the right amount? Do they suffer?? Once again she is a pet. We don't want to use an axe or anything like that. We were planning on sedating her then do a CO2. Can anybody help out with this?
