Well - even a vegetarian might have to euthanase a hen that was suffering - or would a vegetarian just let her suffer until she dies naturally......... which might be a long drawn-out painful death......... mind you - they do that with humans don't they - so why not chickens?  :D

Being vegetarian doesn't solve the problem of what to do with unwanted cockerels or ill birds needing ended. I hadn't eaten meat for 20 years for my own reasons but now keep hens and am hatching eggs so knowing how to dispatch has become a necessity.
