Well, I had one roo that was so mean, I decided he had to go! and what a better chance than to see how well I handle processing them than that! I hated that roo, he picked on all the hens and intimidated the other roos terribly. My beautiful Sultan roo hid in the corner from him all day. I thought my bad feelings for him would make it easier! I caught him after a little chase, and tied him by his feet from a tree. I thought that cutting the neck would be better than the chop the head off thing since they arent supposed to flop around so much that way. It would have been ok, but my knife wasnt sharp enough and I had to go get a better one, I was using my expensive cutco knives that are supposed to cut anything! I went back for the serrated one, and I still had to do a saw type action to get it to cut thru to the vein. That was the worst part!!! I felt so bad for him, he had to know what was happening!! I wanted this to be a humane thing when they had to go but I just dont know.... I didnt have any problems at all after he was dead as far as processing and cleaning went. But the getting them to that point was horrible. There has to be a better way!! Please tell me its ok. I still feel bad about it, even if he was a bully and I didnt like him.
