I just culled my first chicken, slit her throat instead of chopping her head off. She died quickly, although it seemed like a year My question is this: Her wings flapped for about 15 seconds...did I do something wrong? I was only trying to end her suffering (old hen, heart failure, no longer benefitting from tapping her belly), but my fear is that I made her suffer. I will really miss her, despite the fact that she was the worst layer I've had. Any tips for next time would be appreciated. Having a fox get them all when the time comes probably won't work as a plan for the future.
