Ok, maybe this is a small rant but whatever; Ok, so I had been thinking about trying to get a job at the local feedstore, currently three of my friends work there already. I talked to one who's my best friend, last night on the phone. We were talking about this and that and he told me about one of the Cornish chicks that had a hurt leg, and how one of the employee's daughters put it in a seperate tank so it wouldn't get hurt anymore. I asked him what they did with most of the wounded chicks (occasionally they ask my mom and I take take them because they know that we will help), and he said "the ones with like broken legs or whatever" they usually usually break their necks to do away with them. But then he told me that the one head guy felt bad doing it that way so he tried drowning them, which didn't work and they were still half alive so he ended up asking a different employee to snap the necks. Now I realize that having a wounded chick wouldn't entice a buyer that much, but is it really called for? My friend said they aren't usually too mortally wounded, just need some extra TLC. If I get the job I will defintely be taking any wounded chicks off their hands though, is no bother to me. Our feed store is quite helpful, and everyone is really nice, but I wish they would contact my mom or me when they have one like that, but they must think they can't be bothered to pick up the phone? I don't know. But does anyone else know of feedstores that do this? I know its probably the same for hatcheries too though..
