    Excellent links, especially the second one.

    Can I add one not already covered?

    Cervical Dislocation is shown in this video at about 1:00,

    it's the only CV video I've found that doesn't remove the head.

    Notice the slight divot in the ground under the stick and neck, this will keep the bird from being choked and struggling.

    Notice that she slowly stretches out the neck and legs before giving the short sharp jerk that breaks the neck , this is key to success IMO.

    I've found this technique to be very effective.

    I had never seen the "captive bolt" method.

    Pretty common in the meat industry, I think.
