Homemade killing cone!

    I converted a 2 gal. bleach jug into a killing cone this weekend and it worked wonderfully! It also presented the chicken's neck at just the right juncture for a clean slice to remove the entire head.

    I'll never go back to the axe again, that's for sure.

    Found some very odd things in these chickens this time and I should have taken some pics....one was a huge and very gross egg impaction. The other was the biggest set of roo cojones I've ever witnessed! [​IMG] [​IMG] They were as big as golf balls! [​IMG]

    Chicken nuggets! [​IMG] I once ordered turkey nuts at a restaurant... it's exactly what you think it is. They tasted really greasy.

    Hmm, I don't know about that... I don't think I could eat that particular part of an animal. I'd usually try anything once, but it's just the thought of it. Around here though a popular event is the Rocky Mountain Oyster feast. Rocky Mountain Oysters for those who don't know are bull testicles. Sorry, but the Testicle Festival is not for me. Blech.

    It's all meat to me! But they just didn't taste good. So, testicles are not tasty.

    I wouldn't and couldn't imagine!! I ate raw oysters a week ago and didn't like it. I was shocked. I never like food![​IMG]

    Quote:Excellant idea! I like to bleed my birds out quietly so I just slice the jugular instead of removing the head. I hold them by the feet and they just calmly hang out, bleeding and looking around upsidedown (usually do two at a time). They still have a minor CNS response upon loss of consciousness, though, so this bleach bottle cone would be nice in keeping from being beaten with the wings.

    Egg impaction would've been interesting to see. Take pics, next time! I've seen some big cahonas on some of our roos, too. Always a shocker!
