How to cull a 8 week or so old chicken?

He/she has a bad leg that is bent backwards in the wrong direction. It started out as straddle(sp?) leg which I tried to fix with the tape but only one leg fixed and the other would never change no matter what I did. It is to bad to fix. I have seen different ways to do it such as cutting off the head, breaking the neck, or making a gas chamber out of baking soda and vinegar. I don't like the idea of the gas chamber thing or breaking the neck with my hands. I have chopped off young chicks heads before but never one that was old enough to move and run around. Is there another way or how would I keep it from running around and still?
