(note: this gets a little graphic -- warning to the squeamish)
One of us would hold the wings, another the feet, and a third would slit the throat over a pan to gather the blood as it drained. Then a half minute dunk into some hot water. Then an interminable amount of feather plucking. We would then make a Y incision and pull out all the organ bits. Then one of the group would harvest the bursa for use to make anti-bodies for some research projects. A quick hit with a butane torch to clean up the little hairs and then off with the feet into a zip-lock and off to the fridge.
(end of graphic stuff)
Overall it wasn't as gross as I was expecting.
