I am going to use the pithing method on them(I think). I have never used it before, so I hope all goes well. I will be posting pics, so please feel free to critique my work as this is going to be a learning experience. Although I am a hunter and thought maybe I could just shoot them in the head with a rifle vs. shotgun as that would pepper them with buckshot. Any suggestions on this? I will be doing this at 8 tonight....so please hurry with comments, suggestions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well we did two of ours yesterday for the first time ever, we tied up their feet, hung them from nails we nailed to a tree, and then tie their head to the tree. They were so calm and in a trance. BF used an axe and said it worked fine. We skinned them and found it to be easy enough.

I wouldn't personally use a gun, but i guess it is up to you. The axe really did work well. Good luck.

I haven't used the pithing method. I have cut the heads off, bled them out, or cut the artery and then broken the neck (yes, that seems like overkill, i know). Personally, i wouldn't use a bullet on a chicken's head. I would just cut the head off. It's not nearly as bad as you think it might be.
