So I've just built a Chicken Generator, that should supply me with raw chicken meat, in order to sell in to Butchers.
However, I've encountered an issue: I used a Weighted Presssure Plate to activate the kill mechanism when there are enough chicken. The problem: chicken are less than one block tall, which makes suffocating them impossible, unless the Pressure Plate is destroyed (which I don't want to happen).
So, what cost-effective kill mechanism (that doesn't cost me hundreds of Redstone) should I use, eventually replacing the Pressure Plate with something else?
Please note that:
- Fire or Lava aren't options, since I want Raw Chicken.
- I'm playing Minecraft 1.8.7 and want an answer that works for this version, prefferably.
