We use a camp stove to keep the water hot. I just use my fingers to clean out the cavity and rinse very well. We use a small propane torch to burn off all the tiny feathers. It's been a couple of years since we've processed birds (didn't have any cooperative broodies last year an didn't want to mess with raising chicks), so I don't remember exactly how long it took us. Like I said, the more you do it, the faster it will go. My husband and I do it together, so that helps the process go more quickly, too.Thanks everyone.
I had to reheat the water between each and that added quite a bit of time. As well, I include setup and teardown/cleanup.
What do you use to scrape the cavity?
What do you do about all the tiny feathers? Someone told me you can burn them off with a match.
