How to Dispatch a chicken?
#1
Hi everyone,



At least 2 of our 4 chickens are eating eggs, I have tried all the remedies on here and am now at the conclusion that they have to go, but I don't know how to do it?



Please advise,

Many thanks,

Emma.

If you're unsure how too do it, then it's probably better to get someone to show you

There is a link on here somewhere giving details of the broomstick method. When I had to cull one of mine I followed the instructions and did not have a problem Other than that I shook for the rest of the day <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':unsure:' />

Or, I recently read a thread suggesting raising the height of nest box should stop them. Never tried it myself. <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' />

the person who started this thread is asking for help.<img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/huh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Huh' /> but it seams to me that you are taking the mickey. she is asking how to dispatch a chicken. tell her straight or send her somewhere that can tell her. it might be that some of you cannot bring yourselves to tell her. or it could be that i am being too sensitive because i too cannot get a strait answer for culling chickens its very frustrating

I think you are being over sensitive actually. These people are not taking the mickey, they are suggesting serious alternatives to culling...a better solution if it works, surely? <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/huh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Huh' />

Nobody is taking the mickey they are giving sensible and helpful replies, i suggest you re-read ALL the posts again. There is a link showing how to dispatch a bird. Showing someone in real life is a lot easier than trying to put it in words.

she has been kindly advised by several good and decent folk - all with good suggestions, including a link that tells in very 'straight' terms how to cull a chicken using the broomstick method.



you mention that you too frustratingly cannot get a straight answer for culling chickens - I cant find any time that you have actually asked...............indeed had you done so, you would have received similar help from the very same lovely, helpfull, good kind folk on here too <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/001_smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':001_smile:' />

A tactful reply Choccy <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Wink' /> to what is an old topic and the originator of the topic never complained.

I would still say that the £60 i spent on a course to despatch chickens was the best money i spent.If you can afford it, i would recommend it.
