Not to get in the middle of a heated debate, but for those of you researching as I was/am. I found this video when we were going to kill our first rooster. I really am drawn to how calm and relaxed everything is, and this is how I am going to try to slaughter our meat chickens who will be 8 weeks next week. We were not able to do our roosters this way as they were both quite flighty and wouldn't have ever calmed down enough for this, however, I think our docile cornish crosses will. I just wanted to share this with people. I'm sure there are others out there like me, I know that the chicken is dead but there is something too brutal about just cutting off it's head. Looking for a calmer way.
