1. Great to see someone else who’s not scared to kill a rooster for food 🙂 If you don’t have a pot big enough to dunk the chicken in, you can boil a jug or pot and pour the hot water over the chicken instead, its not as good, but does get a feathers looser than if you dry pluck.

    • @farmer_liz: I’ve no problem killing my own roosters when they taste this good! The next time I did a chicken, I poured hot water into a large heavy-duty plastic bucket for scalding, and the plucking went so much faster. I’ve no idea why I didn’t think of that before! I guess I was just looking for something I could put on the stove, and never considered heating the water in a pot and transferring it to a dunking tank. Duh!
