I've posted on several threads saying how my standards and silkies get along OK. I've also posted about my desire to eat my roos if they get out of hand and so I can do my part to prevent baby roos from ending up in a dumpster behind a hatchery. Today my #2 roo beat the crap out of my silkie roo. The silkie was just pinned to the side of the run while the standard(Speckled Sussex) roo picked all the feathers off his head and ripped apart his pea comb. The silkie is now in a guinea pig cage until I can provide him new accomodations. I'd give him an 80% chance of survival. Tomorrow Roo #2 will lose his head. I have never processed a bird but have studied it here and been told how to do it from friends who have. I've also watched videos on youtube.com. Giving him away is not a valid option and neither is just killing it. He MUST not be wasted. I'm gonna take off the hole head. I had to do it on one bird when she was badly injured. Slitting the throat is something I could learn to do later on when I get an actual meat bird order. Any last minute advice would really be appreciated. How I wish someone like silkiechicken or Greyfields was closer by.
