Will you please post a picture of the bow on the bird? It's a little hard for me to figure out how the two ends of the bow loops hod the wings and feet... thank you!

How to Caponize Chickens
by: Countryfarm Lifestyles

All you need is some string with slip knots, rather than a bow, so that the string tightens around the legs and the feed, which also helps with using the weights.The hooks with the weights attached help stretch out both wings and legs ready for the cut.

I have also seen some pictures of Asian caponizing where a helper holds the legs taught and the person performing the operation has the chicken on the ground with his feet on top of the spread wings and holding the wings apart!

Here is a great link
to see the caponizing operation.
