    I noticed one BYCer uses a stun gun to knock his chickens out before slitting their throats. Does anyone else use this method? My only concern would be voltage as I can't find a stun gun that delivers less than 80,000 volts and I read you should use between 30-150 volts or 20-100mA to stun a chicken. I'm concerned about the high voltage affecting meat quality.

    NO... and noone in their right mind should eather. It is meant to be used in a processing facility under specific conditions with safeguards for the operators in place.
