I have definitely skinned my fair share of birds back in the day and it makes the job a lot easier but now that I know the value of what's in the skin of a bird I leave it on every time!

Skinless chicken? Really? What are you going to do with a skinless chicken? -that's the best part.

That's not necessarily a true statement. Animal fat, in moderation, is a perfectly natural and healthy food. Plus, its much easier to cook fowl with the skin on than skinless. I pluck all birds: Doves, Ducks, Geese, Turkeys, Pigeons... even sparrows and starlings. Its a little extra effort for a undeniably superior meal. With the exception of waterfowl, that's often the only fat you are going to get on a bird and it gives you way more cooking options.

If we're talking sheer convenience, why not just go to KFC? Its cheaper, easier and quicker. (that's why I'm always annoyed with "convenience" arguments by hunters regarding plucking wild birds: There is absolutely nothing "convenient" about going duck hunting, so why should you expect anything different when it comes to butchering? It like, you'll get up at 2:30 in the morning, stand in waist deep, freezing water for 8 hours, but you don't have time to pluck a bird?)
