Sprinkle with flour and stir to coat the vegetables. Gradually add the chicken stock, stirring constantly. Add the cayenne, salt, fennel seed and thyme. Cover and simmer for 1 hour. Add the oysters, oyster liquid, and simmer for 10 minutes. Cool and refrigerate for 8 hours.
Before serving, heat the soup slowly over low heat. Makes 1 gallon, serves 8 bowls.
