I currently have a 9 week old Rhode island red and he is extremely mean. He has got me good in the face, hands, thighs, and went after me several times when i go to feed him. I have a nice long stick I give him a good whack with when i need to keep him off. I was wondering because I cant stand the break the neck or the slitting or bleeding at all, if i could just clamp down on his neck tight where it stops blood flow to the brain and wont let him breath either, i tied this for about 3 seconds just to see his reaction and he didnt budge or panick at all, he just gave me a realy sad look and he started tearing up, thats why if i do this again, it will be the last time for him. And i cant stand to eat the meat either and no one around me processes chickens or wants to eat a regular, non meat chicken. Advice would be great. i am also sure you guys will say that ax and the block is the best way, but for me it is not an option. I have tried craigslist but no one wants a realy mean rooster.
