Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: How should one do zabah of a pigeon, chicken, poultry? How many veins should be cut?


A: At the time of slaughter the following four arteries or at least three should be cut (windpipe, food pipe and both jugular veins) with taking the name of Allah Ta’ala at the time of slaughter.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

(و) ذكاة (الاختيار) (ذبح بين الحلق واللبة) بالفتح: المنحر من الصدر (وعروقه الحلقوم) كله وسطه أو أعلاه أو أسفله: وهو مجرى النفس على الصحيح (والمريء) هو مجرى الطعام والشراب (والودجان) مجرى الدم (وحل) المذبوح (بقطع أي ثلاث منها) (الدر المختار 6/294)

(ومنها) التسمية حالة الذكاة عندنا (الفتاوى الهندية 5/285)
