I've killed a number of chickens with my own hands and it made me vegan. I started raising chickens as part of a general Farmy thing I was going through. Turns out vets don't like to take sick chickens and they charge a buttload to put them down. I love my chickens, I take good care of them, and I don't want them to suffer at the end of their lives... but chickens have a way of cannibalizing their own so it's imperative to stay on top of the situation and act when action is needed.
WhoTF take a chicken to the vet?
