It has been a long time. Chooks are always very theatrical & I still have moments where I am wondering if it really is dead frequently. I know people who will happily kill sheep but don't like killing chooks so you did well. It may well have been dead once you broke its neck but they do run around for a while afterwards if you let them. I dry pluck them while they are warm. Do the wings & the legs first as they cool off the quickest.
