Ain't that the truth! Waterfowl are much more labor intensive to
pluck. Their feathers are waterproof, so dipping the bird in hot water
does little to loosen the feathers. I end up dry plucking the birds by
hand and then dipping the carcass in hot wax to remove the pin
feathers. Chickens are MUCH faster to pluck!
