I love chickens. Having them, feeding them, collecting eggs and eating them. But I HATE plucking them, so I got my tools out and got creative.
I just finished building my chicken plucker and took it for a test spin with 20 chickens today.
I spend about 40-45 minutes cleaning every single feather of all the birds including two pit stops (battery change). So that is 2-3 min./bird
Of course would be faster using a drum plucker, but considering this plucker was build for less than $30 of material, I am counting it as a succes :)
If anyone is interested in a building guide, I will create one
Happy plucking :)
