    I have been slaughtering chicken for a while now. But still think there is need for a less painful method for slaughtering them. What is your trick?

    From what I had seen when I was young, my mother would pull the feathers on the hen's neck. And then she would tap the neck with the side of the knife before slashing it. During that time, there were no dressed chicken in the market and the only available chicken are the live ones. So if you don't know how to butcher a chicken then you have a problem. But I admit that I haven't tried that because when I was in high school, dressed chicken were already available in the wet market.

    We hold the bird by the legs, upside down. The bird will go unconscious. Sort of passed out. Then put on block & one chop remove the head. Hang bird by the feet to drain. Then ready to butcher.

    Thank you. This sounds workable. I will try this out. I usually feel for the bird. Especially when i remove some feathers around the neck to allow for slaughtering.

    Hahahaha. Funny responses here. The best way to slaughter a chicken is to use a sharp knife that would cut through the flesh with ease, like a hot knife through butter. Nothing can beat this.
