Why is it when you pick up the cockerel that you're about to dispatch, and you're walking to the chopping block.....

Thast they snuggle into you?


I hate it when they do that.

It is awful, isn't it. Make you feel like a real heel. :-(

I had four boys on a cat carrier ready for dispatching, I took the first one out & dispatched him, I went back & got the second one & dispatched him.
By the time I went back to the cat carrier to get something else, the two remaining boys were VERY quiet LOL

A friend once said her husband would never do more than 3, because by the 3rd one they know. I tend to stick to 3 or 4 max, and only if I have help. I cage them and do the quietest one first, unless there is an obviously stressed one. I like them to be fairly serene, if that is an appropriate description, but don't like doing the snuggly ones either. My Buff Sussex rooster won his right to a reprieve and several wives, by doing the snuggle trick.

The remining two will be done tonight as they are still on the cat carrier, but they are crowing up a storm.
I thought the two I did were the noisiest, but maybe these two have found their voices....
