In the Brooder

I'm interested in hearing what kind of axe or knife people use for decapitating their poultry. Any links to where I could purchase a good one would be great too.
So you cut your chickens first, then lop the head off? I was under the impression that you wanted to severe the spinal cord straight out and limit hormones getting to the meat. Limiting the stress on the animal also, keeps endorphines and hormones out of the bloodstream. Is that just an old tale?
