how do ye people cull chicks???
I find the best way is to snip off their heads with poultry shears, have a bag in place to catch the head and the few drops of blood. I do it in my basement sink. I have tried several other ways but find this is the easiest on both me and the chicks I think.
Do you have a sick baby? I'm sorry, I have never had to do that but maybe someone can help you.
Quote:omg..........I had no idea that is how it is done. I thought you would put them to sleep like the vet would.
You are a much stronger person than I. I so hope that I will never have to do that.
I am so sorry you got a sick chick.. it is sad when you got to do that to a baby chick..
oh I am sorry I thought the OP actually wanted advice on how to cull a chick and that is how.
Grab the chicks body in one hand, its head in the other, and pull it's head off. Thats the quikest, easiest way I know how.
I culled mine i didnt know how so i drowned it!
atleast i know how other people do it!
I think pulling their head off is the quickest and easiest for tiny babies. For bigger ones I usually stomp on their heads or hit them with a hammer or club of some sort.
It's sad, but necessary sometimes. I would NOT pay a vet to put them to sleep...
