Yeah, you live and you learn. I've grown up in the country and on a farm so I've seen lots of stuff. I have to move on. Obviously I learned my lesson, and of course felt bad. It is what it is though. Glad yours went wellI have only done it once for a sick hen, and did it broomstick method. Dislocation of the neck. All worked well thankfully. I would be deeply distraught if I went through a situation like yours.
