around here they place 3 chickens in different areas and draw blood weely to check for nile n other viruses. all are about 8 months old or so and laying. sadly i cant keep em all b/c my coop and run isnt big enough for 11 chickens. 1 of them is real mean and eats feathers off the other ones, so i stuck her in her own cage. i think shell be dinner tonight. im gonna try to extend the run to make room for the other 3 or 4...not sure how many im gonna keep. i have a stump here, should i just put 2 nails in it and cut her head off? what is the most humane method. ive never killed a chicken b4, but am a avid hunter and fisherman, so im not really bothered by it.
