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!
