I’ve heard from a few people that when they were young they watched the shechting process at kaparos, and haven’t been able to eat chickens since.
My minhag is to do kaparos with money and since I’ve been a little kid I can’t eat money.September 10, 2013 11:52 pm at 11:52 pm #974170Burnt SteakParticipant

Could you do Kaparos with a crash test dummy?September 11, 2013 5:07 pm at 5:07 pm #974175pixelateMember
I don’t think that if you eat the chickens you will get the aveiros of the person who did his kaparos on them.September 11, 2013 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #974176EnderParticipant

Until relatively recently, one usually bought the chicken LIVE and brought your chicken to the shochet, and then brought it to the person who checked it, and then took it home and butchered it. Frum girls learned how to do this, as it was typically part of being a housewife. This was normal back in the early 20th century.
Today, virtually no one knows what to do with a dead animal until its been properly butchered, salted and packaged. That is the complication with live kapores since few people can have their chicken killed and then redeem (or gift it), and expect it to be served shortly.September 11, 2013 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #974178WIYMember

I did learn how to kasher chickens in school, and when I was in camp we went on a trip to a shechita house to learn from watching the process. It’s not true that girls can’t handle it- everyone enjoyed the trip very much, and ate the chicken that night no problem.
