UPDATE: Hi everyone. Thanks for your help. In the end, I tried the jar method, but couldn't stand the thought of it taking so long. So hubby took the little one out back and did it in with the limb cutters. So that's the new solution. Get hubby to do it. Hi folks, Today my order from Ideal arrived. 25 baby chicks. One of them has what appears to be a dislocated knee. The leg is limp and cold to the touch, and a clear fluid is seeping from near the knee joint. In short, this chick is not going to make it. I came up with, and dismissed several methods of culling. What I have decided on is to put the chick in a jar, with soft paper at the bottom, and put the lid on. I figure that the chick will suffocate, and just peacefully go to sleep as the oxygen is used up, and feel nothing. Can anyone give me their feedback on this method of culling? I already tried to cut the head off, and I can't do it. I'm weak.
