    When I have one that won't stand on the scale I take it into the bathroom and weigh it in the dark. They stand pretty still in the dark.

    Used them today to cull a chick. She became stuck to her shell and managed to pull her intestines out through her naval. I had hoped it was just her egg sac, but it was far worse than that.

    Anyway, they were very effective. Very sharp and only needed to squeeze once and the job was done.
