When plucking a goose, first cut the wings and head. If you are using your hand to pluck, take most of the outer feathers off back, tails and flanks. Prepare a mixture of water and pound paraffin. Boil this water until all the paraffin melts. Let it cool for about 10 minutes and then submerge it in the bucket so that when you get it out, the feathers are down and coated with paraffin. Finally remove the feathers and peel off the wax. There is also the electric method which you can try out.
