Getting a living rooster from the market place and home would have been a minor challenge without professional assistance.
Even harder than ”bringing the bacon home” is the stage from living rooster to a rooster boiling in the big pot. But the experienced lady who helped out in the kitchen took care of it all.
First: find a steady broom shaft. Second: Put the rooster on the ground. Third: Put the broom shaft cross the rooster’s neck and squeeze for a minute or so.
As soon as the rooster has stopped moving, you bring it in to the kitchen and put it in some really hot water for a while. Then it’s peace of cake to pick the feathers off.
