Put the bird in a big pot or cooler or whatever will hold it. Put the container with the bird in the sink or bathtub and fill it with cold water and leave it on at a very slow stream all night. Make sure the drain isn't blocked so the water can go down the drain. When you get up, put the bird in the fridge.
