Surely as the animals are swung around to break their necks, this isn't even Kosher killing, just another form of thoughtless cruelty.

The chickens are NOT swung around by their necks or to break their necks.


The Rebbe would hold the chicken with the palms of both hands (like catching a football), and hold it aloft while making the 3 circles in the air in front of his head.
No crazy twirling, swinging or spinning. The bird stayed calm the entire time.

Dr. Amir Kashiv, who reviewed our videos, stated:
The wings of the “modern industrial” chicken aren't strong enough to support its body and therefore it is largely flightless. In broiler chickens, even the legs can hardly carry the intentionally bred-for-increased-bulk body, resulting in very common lameness problems. Lifting the bird by its wings places an unnatural tension on ligaments, tendons and bones. Swinging the bird in the air can cause dislocations,tears, ruptures and broken bones. The manner in which chickens are handled during the ritual of Kaporos is, in my view, painful and harmful and thus inhumane.
Dr. Amir Kashiv MRCVS
(Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons)
Dr. Ian Duncan, Professor Emeritus of Poultry Science at the University of Guelph in Ontario, wrote that “holding a domestic fowl with the wings pinned back as shown will be painful. It will be extremely painful if the bird is held in this position for some minutes.”

Dr. Nedim Buyukmihci, Emeritus Professor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis, observed that “the manner in which the man is holding the chicken, with the wings pulled back, puts the chicken at risk for ligament and tendon injury, possibly even bone fracture.”

However one may dislike the annual ritual of 'Kaparot' The fowl is just going around in a circle. If people hate what is done to animals for the convenience of their dinners etc. they shouldn't then eat any meat.
I would also add for those people who think that the ritual of 'Kaparot' (the transferring of one's sins to a Bird) just before Yom-Kippur is so cruel, just remember what Muslims are doing to their fellow man 'Decapitating them' that is barbarism, Kidnapping women and children, selling them off as slaves,raping them, forcing them to convert to Islam, or die by the sword, this is barbarism imported back from the medieval times. so just forget about the practice of KAPAROT it pales into insignificance when compared to what some Muslims are practising in the name of Islam.
