Anyone coming on the kill pluck course tomorrow ??
« on: October 15, 2010, 17:15 »
I'm going with my mate as the missus I a vegi. Just wondered if anyone else will be there I'm looking forward to it. Don't know is that is a strange thing to look forward to but more looking forward to the other bits not the killing bit.

well done for learning how to do the deed, it never is nice but sometimes needs must.
Staffies are softer than you think.

I think on these courses they tend to do the broomstick method, I have done this way, plus using an axe but prefer to use one of these:-

unless it is for very small chicks (such as sickly newly hatched ones) then I do this differently  :(

thank you joyfull - looks interesting, we only do a few - any cockerels that we get from any eggs or from chicks, so we wait until they are a decent size so this should work.
We did the axe, but doing Sussex, the feathers made it tricky, it was easier on the Co - nu though.

I know roughlee did this course, I must admit to thinking of doing it myself. I put to the wife during our tea on Sunday  :ohmy: didn't get a good reaction to growing our own. So its on the back burner at the mo.
