For poultry showmanship/proper ways, you pick it up, scooping underneath the wings, then you wiggle your right hand, with your middle finger between their legs, then squeeze your fingers together like you're going to slap someone. With your pinky and thumb, you latch on to their wings so they can't flap away. Then, you can use your left hand to do whatever needs to be done. (If it's more comfortable, reverse the hands) I'll post pics once it's not dark out. Edit. They don't care if their held this way, they actually seem to enjoy it.
