As I stated in the title of this post I had to cull 2 hens today due to a chronic illness. It went as well as this kind of thing can go. I felt like a trader though! They trusted me completely and I was the one who took thier life. How long will it take for this heaviness in my heart to subside and the lump in my throat to go away? I know that this was nessesary but it still hurts.
