Need help my friends. I have a hen who needs to be put down in the morning if she is not better than she was tonight . I was going to use the 'twist and pull' method but I just read that it is best used on chicks and not adults. If I have an ax and a large log will it be quick and fairly painless? Please don't suggest freezing or trying to use carbon monoxide. What is the best way to hold her on the stump? Will the ax still kill her if I hid her face with a sock so I don't have to look at her eyes? Please don't laugh at me I just need to do what's best for her. It will be hard on me (my first cull) but she comes first. I want her to go quick. Now I can't stop crying!
