    Quote:Great post with everything you need to know! Ditto on having the guts to do it! At least I know how now, in case of an emergency or when my hens stop laying. It seems harsh to us city slickers but it is done every day on small and large scales for us to eat. I figure everyone has been doing this from the beginning of time...so if I can eat chicken, raise chickens, I can humanely cull my own birds after they have a great life here with us!
