    I want to thank all of you that gave me help. I did my first bird today. Went a bit slow and was always second guessing myself. Hopefully the next one will be better. I still have 3 weeks before i will do them. This bird had broken legs...Thanks again..jim

    GJ! I remember my first bird, it was a disaster. To this day, my wife swears it was still alive after taking it out of the cone and putting it into the scalding pot. I think it was expired, but it was certainly still moving and did make a sorta crow noise. Since then, I've been removing the head while the bird is still in the cone. Live n learn [​IMG]
