I'm not a pheasant plucker

My rabbit supplier was only able to provide 2 rabbits instead of the 4 I needed, so gave me a deal on 2 pheasant to go with them. I need advice on (1) plucking and (2) cooking pheasant, with or without the rabbits.

I have to feed 9 people on the 27th to give relief from turkey, I was going to do a hearty rabbit stew, alas the 2 rabbits won't stretch to 9. Would it be possible to do something which combines the 2 pheasant and the 2 rabbits in one dish or should I cook them separately? Do you have any recipes or ideas for how they might go together?
The pheasants are still feathered, with beaks and all internal organs - any tips on getting them from that state to ready for the pot? I.e. on plucking, butchery, and general preparation for cooking.
