I just killed a 10 week old game chicken stag. Scalded and picked it but I still have a good many black pin feathers, most of them appear to be completely under the skin. I don't know that they would even be particularly noticeable on a white chicken. Before I cook it I may give tweezers a try. Have noted "pinning" knives but really not sure how they are supposed to operate. Haven't cleaned a chicken in years, just got back into it this spring, and always just skinned them in the past. I really don't want to skin this bird.
