Do any of you ever find yourselves not responding to a thread in this forum, because you find it hard to not reccommend putting an animal down? Over the year I have been a member here, I always check this forum, even responded a few times, however allot of times I find myself just closing a thread and moving on. Mostly because I don't want to start a debate on euthanasia. I understand that in many of these cases the guys needing help view and treat the chickens as members of the family. But when they tell about the chicken not being able to walk for days, organs exposed, no eyes and other stuff like that. I find that I have to just move along, but am I doing a disservice to the animal, relief from suffering is also a responsibility of a good owner. I am not wanting to kick the "top off the ant hill" it is not a debate on the benefits of euthanasia or not, that I am looking for, it's a question of whether some of you see things the same way I do. Or, am I some sort of frankenstien, for thinking it?
