Home made chicken plucker / how to make

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

I was looking on line for a reasonably priced chicken plucker. I found a few sites that tell about making one yourself, had not thought of that.

What better place than BYC to find out other peoples experiences in making their own chicken pluckers !

Would love to see other peoples ideas or suggestions.

There are several threads on here about how to make one for next to nothing out of an electric drill and black rubber bunji cords or similar.  Here's one:

They have a drill attachment one at Cabelas for $14.99.  I believe it is meant for waterfowl, hence the shorter plucker fingers...all the reviews state it works better on a dry bird.
