Before we took our meat kings to the government approved processing plant back in September I had very mixed feelings. (We couldn't find a local person to kill them with conventional methods which I thought would be kinder). I had googled the killing process in a plant but wasn't sure if it was 'humane' enough in my books. I believe they are hung by their feet in an assembly 'line' fashion, then dunked in electrocuted water (which will hopefully kill them instantly), then throats slit etc. Even though I was told by a neighbour the birds did not appear to be distressed when they were "electrocuted", as she had seen the process herself at this same plant, I did not feel completely alright with it. My question: Does anyone know if the process in the plants is a relatively stress and pain free way of killing a chicken? Thank you for your thoughts.
