Waxing Chickens - How To Defeather A Chicken In Hot Wax

OK... I had to share this... ZykloniaDark-GothikRanchr had posted something about this in another thread, and as I had just spent the last 3 days doing fine-detail plucking on 17 meat birds, I decided to pick Delight's brains on it.  I cannot take the credit, but we did it today on three roosters (yes, my extra lt Brahmas are no more) and I was amazed at how easy it was.   I decided to document it for other "visual" learners.

You will need:
~a chicken
~Paraffin wax
~A large pot for the water, just warm enough to melt the paraffin wax, and large enough to dunk a whole chicken.
~A large bucket, or another pot, with ice cold water in it, deep enough to dunk a whole chicken.
