...a duck before?

Any pointers on how we might go about doing this with 12 9 pound domestic ducks? We got an offer on a good deal, $5 a head...we just have to kill them ourselves...gulp. :confused:

I have never killed anything before in my life...well not like this...fish don't count LOL and seriously need help doing this!

Any suggestion or ideas would be great.

I couldn't do it, so good luck.

Have yu considered letting the dogs do the killing?

I probably could never do something like that, but Aspen has killed a duck... :wink:

It happened one time when we were scootering. The line got tangled in the tire and broke off. He got loose and there were ducks ahead of us. They started to fly and Aspen was able to jump and catch one! :eek:

I have considered letting the dogs do the dirty work, but I think that the only one that would be able to actually kill one with minimal torturing is Shiloh...the rest are just big wimps! And I would be afraid of the ducks just flying away...?

You could give it a try. She's really quick and has wolf in here. So she should be an expert... :tongue:

you could try the whole pull the head off technique. I did that with chickens where we put their neck under a bar, stepped on the bar on each side
of the neck and pulled the body really hard and fast! worked well, but ducks are wayyy cuter than chickens! If you give me a duck or two I'll help ya!! :wink:

nope--couldn't do it. I move around the toads in the yard when mowing.

Jim used to help his grandfather "off" the chickens. They had 2100 approx. layers going at all times. Once they were to old - it was grab them with one hand holding the wings together and have a hatchet in the other. something about the wings being held together made the neck stick out and be rigid.

Your right --fish don't count!

One person Grab the head and one person grab the body. hold it over a stump ot something and cut the head off. should be fast and painless for the duck.

A long time ago, when I was like 14 or something, I was over at my Aunt's house. Her and her mom had brought a live chicken into the kitchen. I didn't know what they were going to do at the time. Next thing I know, I hear this loud smack! and in comes a headless chicken into the living room where I was! It was running all over the place with it's head cut off and blood was going everywhere...it had escaped from them!!! :eek:

Oh my god! That was WAY worse than I THOUGHT the Kitah vs. day old chicken was going to be (I thought Kitah was going to do the killing)! I don't know why I looked at that. Guess I'm more morbid than I had hoped. :rolleyes:

You guys sure have you work cut out for you! Good luck with that! I'd pay $10 each just so I wouldn't have to sever their heads! LOL!

Oh, and about them wiggling around after, from what I understand, they really are dead instantly. But their central nervous system is still active (or something). I think lobsters and snakes (and probably other animals) do the same thing. I probably have the terminology all wrong, but I DO know for sure that they are definitely dead and don't feel any pain.

Yikes...guess I am a wimp. Don't think I can do that one. Someone else will have to be the killer.
