    Hello all. I just wanted to let you all know that there is another option for euthanization other than chopping the birds head off. I had to put my baby girl Ethel down on Thursday and could not bring myself to do it so I started calling around to local places and found out that the Humane Society will euthanize any animal for free and just ask for a donation. I am happy to donate to such a great organization and they were super nice. They doctor came and took her back and then came out about 5 minutes later to let me know that it was done. It seemed to be pretty quick and painless (I hope). I know some people on here don't feel its worth spending the money on a $5 chicken but for me it was worth it. I just wanted to let everyone else know that they have another option when its their birds time as well.
