I've been thinking about this a lot lately because my rooster has been sick. I've been waking up in the middle of the night worrying myself sick "if he doesn't get better, how am I going to cull him?" I'm a huge animal lover and while I wouldn't want any animal to suffer, I really don't think I could twist a neck, it would just break my heart. There are no poultry vets in my area either. Hubby is feeling the same, just doesn't think he could do it either. If there was a shot I could give a chicken to put it to sleep, that I could do. My rooster is getting better but this has had me wondering if i should really be keeping chickens if I can't bring myself to cull when needed.
