    I got a requested Christmas gift today. I got "Anyone Can Build A Tub-Style Mechanical Chicken Plucker." I have already read it once, and have the wheels in my head turning already. I will be butchering my first batch of meaties April 24th, so hopefully I will have it up and running by then. I have a neighbor who a connection for anything you can think of, so when I fully understand how this is constructed, I am going to pay him a visit. It will be neat to see how much everything is going to cost compared to others.

    Wish me luck!

    Ahh, the gift that keeps on giving! Is that the book about the Whiz-Bang Plucker? Everyone I know who has built one LOVES it! I think it helps to have a good motor that is protected from the water, there are others here who can give you better details. And also to have wheels & a handle for easy transport. Happy building, & plucking!
