This is my set-up. It is designed for one person to be able to process poultry with cleanliness, efficiency and practicality. It is all stainless steel. Easy to keep clean. Everything is on wheels and highly portable. Easily moved and stored.
The cone is mounted on an old surgical table stand. I cut the table itself off. It can be raised and lowered to a comfortable height. I can put different size cones on it easily.
Under the cone is a nice wastebasket on wheels. Put a nice liner in the can, then pour come kitty litter in the bottom. Then line the can a second time with another scoop of litter in the bottom. Position the cone over the can and dispatch the bird. When I cleaned up, all the entrails went in here as well as feathers. Off to the compost pile or to the trash with little chance of leaks.
As a scalder I got a "Hydrocollater". It has a 1000 watt heating element, thermostat, a lid, it's fully insulated and it's all stainless steel! Also on wheels for easy moving and storage. It even has a valve and bottom drain to empty easily. It works great!
As I said, I got a plucker. So glad I did. Soooo glad!
Then I got a nice stainless table and several stainless tubs, buckets, stands and such to help with icing, moving and holding different things along the way.
I got 5 stainless steel buckets that are so helpful for water, ice and moving/holding birds in the process.
The table, cone stand, buckets, garbage can roller, scalder, steel tubs and some other misc stuff not pictured for less than $200.
So, look in your city for used medical stuff. If you are trying to find things you can use for processing that are clean, sturdy, portable, flexible and affordable, you might find some used/retired medical/surgical equipment that will do the trick.
I processed the nine birds, by myself, in less than 90 minutes. Set-up and clean-up were a breeze.
I have 15 Cornish-x that will be ready in two weeks. It should go smoothly. It's important to me that I can do this without assistance if I have to. All the stainless makes it so easy to clean and to keep clean.
I hope you get an idea or two from this information.
Be good to yourselves.
