    I just want any chicken cullers,could you guys do this in a much less violent way please?
    I watched a video on how you treat your birds and not so friendly.

    i try my best to be as gentle as possible, but big cornish chickens who really want to not be hung upside down and butchered are not exactly the most calm...they make it look pretty violent. Though, i don't know what method you watched...some are totally more gruesome than others :)

    Are you referring to somebody specific? What exactly is violent? Help us help you.

    If you need ideas on humane processing methods there are a couple good books:

    Butchering... By Adam Danforth

    My dad and his friend just killed my 2 breeder roosters without me knowing they were almost 2 years old but they both lacked mating and a lot of eggs were unfertile. As a Greek they just grab the roosters and cut there upper neck just under there head. And now I have no breeder roosters anymore... But im getting a new generation this spring as but won't be ready to mate late summer/fall..
