Has anyone found the best way to remove rooster feathers that will be used for hair extensions, when I am killing the roosters for the freezer? When putting meat in the freezer we usually (after they are dead) dunk birds in hot water & pull feathers...but I am thinking this is too messy to do if I want to keep the long feathers that my beautician wants. Or would I do this, then let them dry? I was thinking of skinning the rooster but wasn't sure how hard feathers are to take off.... Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks, Ronda I have 11 roosters going in the freezer tomorrow.
