    Another post triggered this question, and I did not want to hijack another thread.

    So, in an unfortunate event that you have to cull a chicken because of injury or disease - what do you do with the body? Bury it, else?

    If I have to kill a chicken due to an injury that does not affect the meat, I process it and make soup. Dead chickens go into the dumpster or get buried.
