I hatched a bunch of barnyard mixes and ended up with way too many roosters. Their hormones are raging and they are wreaking havoc on my poor hens. We decided today was the day. I had purchased a killing cone and we nailed it to a fence post. This is our very first time, so it's taking us about 45 minutes per bird. While one bird is bleeding out, we're scalding and plucking the next bird. Thank you to everyone on this forum who posted tips on processing chickens!
