I've been working up to processing my quail. I went to Lowe's and bought a pair of purning shears for the job. So I had a bird that went bad and was dying. I thought this would be a perfect chance to try out the shears and work on my resolve to do it. When I tried to remove the head instead of a nice smooth cut I found out the shears were dull. I won't go into details but it was not pleasant. So what do you use for this job? I don't want to but my healthy birds thu that.
