Excerpt from The Journal of Sociologic Medicine, Vol. 16: October, 1915
In the better establishments it is customary to kill the birds by cutting the jugular vein with a slender straight-edged knife, especially constructed for the purpose. Then that portion of the brain tissue which controls the muscles holding the feathers in place is destroyed by a thrust of the same knife, and the feathers are so loosened that they are easily pulled out. The cutting of the blood vessels in the proper way permits the blood to drain out of the carcass until it is practically blood free. This is essential, if the bird is to keep well, and is a part of the process of dressing that is too often faulty. In order to accomplish this bleeding the vessels must not only be cut properly, but the bird must be held head down while removing the feathers.
