Today was D day for my seven 16 week old mutt roosters. I had a work mate help and we pretty much cut a hole in the corner of an empty horse feed bag, poked the roo's head through (new bag for each) and I held the roo while my work mate used a sharp axe. It was a lot easier than I expected, I had been putting it off for so long and today I just thought 'Its now or never'. I am even that confident that with a nice sharp axe and a good helper I could do it myself. Little did I know that was the easy part though! Once it came time to take the meat off - that was rather tricky! But I think at the end of the day I am content that they were my responsibility and I gave them the best life possible and a quick and pain free end, and they will not be wasted. I didn't get a great deal of meat off them, but there are many litres of yummy soup to be made!
