I have an aggressive rooster that needs to go. I knew this would be a possibility when I decided to raise chickens but I am still having a hard time envisioning me doing this. I am pretty sure anyone I re-home him to would just be butchering him because of his aggression so I feel like I might as well do it and have the bonus of a chicken dinner. I am nervous though. I have only killed mice before and that was by drowning... nothing physical on my part. I still felt bad about the mice. lol! Do you have any tips for someone new to this? What is the fastest but most humane way to kill the rooster? He is a Blue Splash Marans and he is really big so there is no way I could hold him down and hope to aim an axe at him properly. I have heard some sad stories about the person doing it making a mistake and not killing the bird right away and I want to avoid that. We do not have a plucker and a quick search of Craigslist didn't show anything I want to buy, so would I be better off skinning him or working to pluck him? He is about 5 months old right now. Thanks for any help!
