    My little Wyandotte bantam x silkie rooster has a prolapse. He's in pain and I don't have any ideas for fixing him. So we'll have to put him out of his pain.
    Should we eat him? Is it worth it? I just don't want to waste him [​IMG]

    You can put sugar on the vent and possibly cure the prolapse. You can give him aspirin. One aspirin per gallon of water.

    If he has to be killed, I would definitely eat him.

    Depending upon his age, he might be a nice little barbecue, or maybe a nice pot of chicken noodle soup.
