    I don't know how to, someone please tell me.
    I can't handle the demon bird during the day so at night would be best (with thick gloves and layered clothing). If my parents don't get rid of him I will because I am sick of him and his sparring at my leg. I have 4 other roosters who never hurt me. Also once Charlie goes I'm pretty sure I'll get a belgian d'uccle pullet [​IMG]

    Lots of ways! You can hang him upside down and cut his throat or cut his head off, make a chopping block and cut his head off with a hatchet, do the broomstick method. There should be a sticky on the top of this section with great post by frugal on how to process [​IMG]

    Turn him to chicken dumpling soup - he'll be yummy!

    I studied lots of things on Youtube. Some were pretty crass and did not watch them completely, but we had never done it before and were able to do so and eat that nasty boy when we were done. B?C we just did one we skinned it.

    I have faith in you....
