I have a four week old bantam that I need to put down. I don't even kill bugs, so I absolutely hate this like so many of you. I guess the kindest for the chick is to remove the head and I am wondering if anyone can recommend or has used pruning shears/loppers. I think something with a scissor motion will be the best for me as I will be doing it alone and will be shaky. If you think these would work well, do you think it matters if they have a straight blade or a curved one, bypass I think they are called. Thanks for any advice on this awful subject.
