Sorry, I'm using you all for free therapy. Our roo had become incredibly violent and was totally ruining our chicken experience. He was also rough with the hens. After hemming and hawing about what to do (I had a post on here about it) our neighbor, who is an excellent hunter, took him into the woods and shot him in the head. He didn't feel a thing. Neighbor took him home to eat him. It was the right thing to do and I have no moral qualms. It didn't bother me seeing the dead bird, but we raised Jack from a day old and he was always a favorite until a few months ago when he turned rotten. We've had a bird die from a dog and one die from being egg bound and the flock killed a chick the other day, but this is the first time we had to kill one of our chickens and I know it is just an expected part of chicken raising and for many people it's totally no big deal, but I've never killed anything nor have I ordered the death of anything before and it's just a yucky feeling. Tell me I'm not crazy. Therapy over. thanks.
