Okay. I got 5 Muscovy ducklings a while back hoping for several females. I ended up with at least 3 males, 1 female for sure and 1 I'm not 100% sure about because it is in between the size of the girl and the boys. My reason for getting muscovy was to be more self sufficient. I would like to be able to produce as much of my own food as possible (until I talk (AKA force) DH into moving) I live in the suburbs and they are quiet, lay well and are usually good moms. I have never slaughtered a bird but I think that I can do it. ( I used to work for the SPCA and had to put animals to sleep so while this is not an injection, I think I can deal with the process) I was hoping to find someone near me that I could get some experience with before having to do this for the first time but the time is approaching (I don't want my 1 for sure girl to be injured by multiple males) and I have not found anyone. I have read what amount to horror stories of inexperienced people trying to slit throats. I don't want to cause undo suffering. So, what would be the easiest method? Opinions from those who have been there would be appreciated. I would prefer a no fault type of method. Thanks.
