    Before I processed my first bird I watched a lot of videos (visual learner). This was the one that I liked the best and ended up doing almost the exact same thing. I like her overall philosophy about the whole thing as well and that she is respectful and uses as much of the bird as possible.

    WARNING: video at the link does show someone kill and break down a chicken. This video is in two parts and goes through the whole process from live bird to stew pot.
