Forgive the dumb questions of a city boy, but what is the easiest or most humane way to slaughter chickens? I've been around plenty of chickens, but always the pet variety. I've heard of chopping their heads off, or wringing their necks, but I don't know if I could handle such a chore. I suppose bringing them to a butcher would be prohibitively expensive. Is there a kinder, gentler way of dispatching chickens?
