This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Animal Care.

For this BB, you will slaughter and clean a pigeon.

There is a heap of good information about how to maximize nutrition, minimize cruelty, and increase efficiency in the process. Here is some useful information:
- Practical Slaughter of Poultry
- Raising Urban Pigeons
- Pigeons for Your Homestead
- Raising Pigeons for Beginners

For this BB, the minimum requirements are:
-Start with 1 Live Pigeon
-Killed in a humane manner
-Processed and either prepared or properly stored within an hour

To document your completion, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
-Living Pigeon
-Pigeon after slaughter, depicting the method used
-Organs separated into suitable for human consumption / not suitable for humans consumption, next to pigeon feathers
Stop it! You're embarassing me! And you are embarrassing this tiny ad!
