I went halves on cornis x's with a neighbor of mine and today is the day to process. We were going to do it together but she has a dog she is boarding and she doesn't trust it, so she can't be here to help. Anyway, She wanted all thirteen of her birds left whole and plucked not quatered and skinless. Those darn birds stink!!!!! It is raining and haas been raining since yesterday and they just stinnk awful. So I plucked the first one a little while ago and some of the skin came off and most of the feathers came out but there are still a bunch of small ones. I did scald the bird first and that really helped but I just can't get those little ones. Any tips from people who do this themselves?
