I am going to have to process my roo, he was crowing for what seemed like an hour last night at 3am. I am trying to pick the best way to do the deed. Some people like the hatchet and stump method. I understand putting two nails in the stump to hold his head straight, but how to you keep his body still. Why don't they just get up and leave while you lift the hatchet? Are they tied down somehow? There would be no way I could actually hit anything with a hatchet unless I swung it with both hands, so I cannot hold him down with my left hand. So I think I am going to go with a cone and a knife, but I just wonder how people get the roo to hold still on the stump?
