Yesterday butchered my first chicken! 15 wk old BR roo. DH was out doctoring our bull and I took a deep breath and conquered it! Everyone told me to just skin it, takes to long to pluck. I plucked, stuborn that way. It took a while but hey 1 bird I think it is worth the time and kind of fun to make sure I got every last one. Sittin in brine right now, I bet he'll be yummy.
