    Wringing a chicken's neck

    Imagine how much pain you would feel if some criminal cameup to you & wrung yur neck off!  When they do that to chickens, very often the body still moves as the brain has not turned off all of its mechanism -- that requires a knife to remove the head.

    Contrast the humanity of making one clean cut with a very, very sharp knife fromthe jugular vein to the carotid artery, as is Kosher.

    Well I didn't say the way meat got to my table is humane!  I do believe in a painless death for the animals.  On the weird note of beheading chickens..from a Ripley's believe it or not book from the library I took out recently.  A headless chicken that lived (survived its beheading)  in the 40's. It had a picture and everything. http://www.miketheheadlesschicken.org/story.html

    We are kinda being silly. It started in the you know you are frugal when... posts. Someone wrote about sourcing organic chicken etc and needing the feet to make her chicken stock jelly and how she had a hard time getting them.  Here in Vancouver with the large Asian culture it is easy to get them since they eat chicken feet all the time.

    Thanks for the info!  As a woman who has butchered her own chickens, I prefer the "off-with-their-heads" method, using a very sharp small axe, but I well remember my mother and grandmother wringing necks.  Miss Paula in Texas

    Sweet Deb, you didn't offend me--I'm not that thin-skinned!  HA!  Just wondered what brought the subject of wringing chickens' necks to our attention--sort of an "inquiring minds want to know"--ha!

    I am not offended :) I think it is good then you know if you buy kosher or halal you know it was a humane kill. Its like that saying " If you saw how things are cooked/run in most restaurants you wouldn't eat there", the same goes for other food industries.

    Dear Martha & MimiPaula, There is nothing I dread more than "lashon hora," evil speech, part of which is defined as rebuking a person in public.  I am so glad to see that I hadn't hurt either of you!  Thanks for your understanding.

    Luvd_Lioness, Glad that you found this topic to be of interest!
