    That is a topic with which I got obsession, I can´t hear anything about but I know it inevitable.
    I have thought in a .22 shot.
    Please, teach me who have any consolating idea.
    Thanks and regards.

    Do you mean when your chickens are older and stop laying eggs?

    Do you mean when a dog or other pet is sick?

    Do you mean something else?

    My problem is I´m unable to kill a chiken and I don´n talk about the wise I have seen farmer doing it.
    Then, how can I raising chikens, what shall I do when I have a lot?
    I´m a good cook and love to invite my friend, is it not absurd to go to meatshop having a lot of chikens?

    You don't have to kill your chickens, I plan on letting mine live a long and healthy life even though their egg production decreases. You don't have to kill them unless you are raising them for meat. I still buy chicken from the shops. and when they stop laying in the winter time i buy free range eggs..

    You don't HAVE to, but it's a lot easier to keep them on the grill or in the pot that way​

    Quote:Raising chickens as livestock for eggs and meat is a dilemma for those that can't bring themselves to butcher and cull as required. My wife won't actually do the kill, but I do and she handles the bird after I bring it to her plucked and cleaned. As a livestock owner it is the responsible thing to do for the animals in your charge to treat them with respect, but remember, domestic animals are bred to serve Man------be it on the table or otherwise.

    To serve one of your own chickens to a friend is only the right thing if your friend appreciates home raised food.

    If you have a lot of chickens who need to be processed for food-hire somebody to do it for you. I know plenty of folks who buy meat chickens and have them processed elsewhere. Some pay a certain price per bird and others simply give a number of birds to the person who kills and prepares the bird.
