I don't know if anyone has had to do this but I am not liking the part of humanely killing a suffering chick. I took me three times to finally get it right.
Now, before anyone thinks that I didn't give it a fighting chance, I tried giving it water and just made the condition worse. I like nurturing not killing.

I certainly don't think anyone enjoys doing the deed, but it is good to know you can do it to end suffering. Good for you for taking care as a responsible owner should. I'm so sorry it didn't go swiftly for you and I'm very sorry for you loss. There are some good posts on humane euthanization on here. Feel free to look around or ask questions. Lots of various opinions and helpful advice.

Quote:Ahhh sorry you had to do that, did you know you can buy a "dispatcher" have seen them on Ebay, they come in different sizes from chick size to adult bird, it is a hand hand tool, quick and humane, and quite inexpensive to buy. Takes the heart wrenching out of the ordeal for you to some degree.

Thank you all. I'll check into that dispatcher thing and I'll check out the euth.blog too. Also thanks for the encouragement.
