I can remember my grandma doing this. After she killed it by twisting the neck. Late 30s.
Also my Indiane mother-in-law in the early 50s.
On sundays after church
Fresh fried chicken, in lard that was rendered after the hog was butcherd. She used everything but the oinker! We had corn on the cob,fresh bisquits, milk gravy, hot bacon and vinegar dressing on garden pulled leaf lettuce! With the whole family -10-12 around the table..We were to stuffed to move! Lots of comardre and laughter.
Then came desserts...usually pies!
