Lately I have been killing all my unneeded roosters, so I have killed about 8 or 9 in the last few weeks. 3 days ago I killed 4 in one day, because I was determined to stop feeding whatever I didn't need and have a more productive chicken project going. My only problem is the time it takes. I find I'm kinda slow with the plucking. But I also find that a plucker is very expensive, so I have been looking at the possibility of making one with a drill and ordering the fingers and such. Have any of you used a plucker, homemade or otherwise? Also, I like to dry pluck. I am offended by the smell of scalded chicken and stopped scalding years ago. It was only an extra mess to clean anyway. How would this relate to a poultry plucker?
