    Just butchered our first chickens and it certainly would've been much better if my poultry shears were decent! I'd love to hear your favorites!

    Cook's Illustrated Magazine tested a bunch and says that MESSERMEISTER Take-Apart Shears ($23.99) Messermeister's super-sharp shears were a cut above the rest.

    I asked this exact question the other day in the poultry forum. You can read the thread if you like (it's short) but the bottom line was:

    Ikea poultry shears
    "Good" (stainless steel) tin snips
