Is it acceptable/humane to wring a birds neck & if so is there any particular technique? We tried to kill a friends big RIR roo yesterday, my DH pulled it's neck like a rabbit & it went limp. We strung it up & were just about to cut it's throat to bleed it out & it ran off!! How I have no idea what happened! He tried again, but it still didn't look dead to me (it was blinking) so the owner of the bird took his head off (it squwaked as he did it) I want to learn how to kill a bird properly, so I can take responsibility for managing my own flock at home, but I don't fancy making a mess of it like yesterday. Any advice you can give?
