Pheasant plucking

This a couple of mates. I'd never come across this before but it's pretty cool

He's not a pheasant plucker - YouTube

Just breast 'em, the rest aint worth the effort. We eat more fezzy than chicken in season. It's not force reared and pumped full of yuk.

I've always just slit the skin along the breast bone & taken the breasts off & binned the rest. Still manage to get feathers all over the kitchen though.

The missus does the same, but on the front bucket plate of our plant trailer. It's a perfect height and the rain takes care of the feathers.

This method only works if the bird is still warm, as soon as it is cold and rigor has set in it won't work, I was shown how to do it by an extremely attractive 19 year old girl!
There is a similar method to do pigeons by twisting off the wings and then pulling up the breast under the sternum. Looks good if you have the knack but gets real messy if you don't .

i started doing it that way a couple of years ago - its brilliant! also do the same with pigeons, but only really have a 50% success rate with those, i think they work best when still warm otherwise you just pull the legs off.

Give yourself a slap man! Your fantasies and hobbies are clearly getting mixed up here.

Check out Arty Boyt.

We used to pass him most days when I was working on the North Coast last year.

There was a particular section of road leading to Newquay airport which is Fezzy suicide ally in season. Arthur would patrol it all day with a full length yellow oilskin coat on, a carrier bag on his head, his mad looking 'Doc Brown' (Back to the Future) hair sticking out through the bag handles carrying more carrier bags full of squashed pheasants. A character.
