Hi, I remember reading on here several years ago about the practice of dispatching birds by cutting into their brain through the roof of their mouths. It was said to be good for ensuring the most relaxed and tender meat possible. I recall the trick was to insert a short thin-bladed knife through the bird's mouth into the back of their head and then twist. It is supposed to cause instant death and total muscle relaxation. Anyway, I am wondering if anyone does it this way and if they have had good results. I am always trying to find a less traumatic way to kill my birds, for their sake and the sake of those who eat them.
