That's not the first time the big clever came out it came out the first time processing I got Cornish rocks to do in a few weeks it's the plucking that takes forever! The rest is easy. smile.png I got the first joint right it was the second one. smile.png I'm getting better though. smile.png

Bend the joint back the opposite way that it normally bends. You should hear some crackling. At this point, you will see where to cut the joint as a flat spot on the knee.

Just put your knife on the flat spot, and draw it across. If your knife is sharp, it will slip right through the joint.
