I know there is a thread on someone building a chicken plucker but I am not that handy but can use tools. What I am interested in is the simplest, easiest, cheapest way to make a chicken plucker with a 55 gallon barrel. At the end of Jan. for the first time, I will be processing cornish chickens. Kind of scared but going to make myself do it. I know from my childhood I DO NOT want to hand pluck the chickens. Can someone please explain in great detail, like make it a Building a Chicken Plucker For Dummies Book, how to make a cheap, easy, and simple chicken plucker? Thank you from a city girl gone country and forcing herself to do things she never thought possible! 2 years ago I was scared of chickens and couldn't get within 3 feet from them!
