So I'm having problems with my hen turkeys getting agressive to one of my laying hens and I've decided to slaughter them. They got a reprieve from Thanksgiving because the parents had a turkey, but I'm ready to put them in the freezer. It's my first time. I hunt though, so I have no problem with actually killing them, esp because that's what I bought them for, but I do have some questions... How big should my narraganset hen be before I slaughter her? She's about half the size of the Bronze breasted, hatched in April, the Bronze in March. I know they grow slower, but will it be alright if I kill her now? I am going to do the hang-upside down in a can method, and I'm wondering how you get them to lay their heads on the block, if one person is holding the wings and the other is doing the chopping? Any other suggestions for a first-time turkey killer without a shotgun? Thanks.
