      but can't kill our chickens.  Any chickens we eat here have to be bought from a store or farm where it's allowed.

      When I was growing up, we didn't chop the heads off the chickens until after we'd broken their necks - they were less likely to run around afterwards.  A good hard swing to snap the neck and then whap! off with the head so we could bleed it out and pluck it.

      But, living in the suburbs, we can't have pigs, meat chickens, goats, cows, or other common farm animals. Egg layers are pretty much it, and we can't kill those for meat.

      All knowledge is worth having.
