Hey guys, I've been reading up on the tub-type plucking machines and am seriously pondering the idea of buying one along with perhaps a gas scalder. I am thinking I could rent this equipment out or provide custom plucking services for fellow chicken people who are butchering. Everyone I know who keeps chickens HATES to pluck and many say they limit their flock size simply because it's such an onerous chore. Many in my circle of friends say they would gladly pay for someone to help them with processing their birds. Anyway, supposing I do this, should I rent it out or simply bring it to customer's sites and operate the equipment for them? What should I charge? I'm thinking $1.50 a bird would be reasonable and should quickly recoup the cost of my investment, possibly even in one season. I would like to avoid gutting/eviscerating, and simply help provide people with clean carcasses for them to butcher as they wish. My biggest concern is processing gizzards would be a huge drain on my time. I also would not want to be responsible for how the meat is handled after slaughtering.
