Some people raise their own food, and once a hen stops laying she is Sunday night Roast Chicken.
But that is not the impression I get here.

what?? what does jar jar have to do with this father murdering the family pet in front of his toddler son?

Based on this one show I watched, seeing things like that at an early age can give your child a "Dark Passenger" that will only leave at the conclusion of a protracted and unsatisfactory story arc.

I grew up with chickens as pets. My parents liked how they didn't have to buy eggs for a couple of years.

You never actually got around to saying what the "problem" was. You just echoed "pet chicken" and then tried to engage in "internet-tough-guy-by-proxy" (the only thing sadder than the run-of-the-mill internet tough guy) using your children. Try again. What precisely is the "problem" in a child crying because their parent intentionally killed one of their pets in front of them?

"Our pet"? "slaughtered"? It sounds like you couldn't give a smaller fuck about its life. Don't call your animals a pet if you can kill them with no hesitation. They are your barn animal. If he was your pet, however, your husband's a bigger dick for killing a beloved chicken in front of your child.

What in the heck are you talking about? Did we even read the same post? Where on earth did the OP say she could kill the chicken without a second thought? It's like you took the entire premise of the FML and included it as a hypothetical at the end of your post there like you'd read something that didn't just say exactly that.

"Our pet" implies that OP held affection toward the chicken. "Slaughtered" has negative connotations that imply she didn't approve of killing the chicken at all, not just him killing it in front of their child. Especially since it sounds like OP only found out what the husband had done AFTER he did it.
