I don't have any chickens............yet. Is it true that a chicken will run around with it's head cut off? What do I do then? Also, what is the best way to kill a chicken - the fastest, least bloodiest, and cleanest way. The thought of bloody work like that doesn't exactly appeal to me... And, last of all, what is the best way to pull the feathers off after it is killed? Should I pull it off by hand; should I use the wax method; or should I use a feather-pulling machine?
