Near as I can tell from the searches this should fix it.   But I will take any other suggestions.  I have some stop rot but not enough to soak the bird about a quarter of a bottle.

You will be fine with the Dawn & warm water. Then give it a good washing after it is fleshed.

Soak it over night. No problem.

The first thing to go bad in a soak is the scales on the feet, so if skin is burnt and hard keep feet out of soak water or sever at feather line. I've soaked a skin for more than two days and no feather loss.

Great, thanks everyone for the replies.   I wanted to make sure before I tried it.   I removed the legs I did a leg to leg incision.

Thanks a lot.

Scrape the skin while it's wet, that will help.
