***This is a genuine question. Please no useless comments saying "man up"*** I've never killed anything. I don't like the thought of me killing things either. Blood and stuff doesn't gross me out though and I've helped my friend gut one of his own roosters but I showed up to his house after he killed them. I didn't even know he was going to kill any birds actually. I've raised my birds and developed relationships with them. The only ones I'm considering eating though are ones I'm not closed to and if any of the males start to get too aggressive. If I can butcher my own birds though I feel like it MIGHT save money on meat (chicken foods kind of expensive though so I'd have to do the math to figure it out) but also I would know my meat had a good life before it became my meal. Idk it's really conflicting for me. I've watched videos of how to do it and decided using a killing cone and cutting the artery in their neck without cutting the wind pipe is best but idk if I can do it so I'm curious how some of you guys were able to get over the first butchering. I know I'm not the only one who feels/felt this way. Any advice or personal stories would be greatly appreciated. And I know some people can be sensitive to gore but I'm not. I want to be a surgeon and watch surgeries on my free time so you don't have to worry about offending me with any unpleasant stories or detailed stories.
