This is not the right way to teach a child about life and death. That chicken was meant to be a family pet, not dinner for the family.
Your chicken was named Jar Jar? Your husband should have shown your kid a Star Wars movie with Jar Jar Binks in it and the kid would’ve strangled the chicken himself!
That's cruel and seriously messed up... but I keep wondering... people keep chickens as pets? o.o

There's your problem right there. "pet" chicken. My 2 year old daughter knows that the birds in the yard, and the birds in the freezer are both chicken. And my 5 year old (who has fired a gun, operated the Bobcat, helps in the kitchen, and has seen me kill several foxes, and coyote that were after the chickens) requests a chicken by name(and yes they're labeled)for supper. Kids these days cant handle shit.
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.
