    I am sitting in Rural North Pueblo County looking to butcher some meat birds. This is my first flock and I would like to rent a plucker. However, my search has led me nowhere. Any ideas of where I can rent a plucker? I can do this by hand but I wanted to process about 25 birds and had no desire to hand pluck all of them. I would be willing to drive dependent on where the plucker is located.

    Just to give you an idea of some of my calls...Conservation Co-op, Local extension office, searched online, Local feed stores, and several others. Any ideas would be helpful as I am planning to process in a couple of days.

    Sorry, I live in El Paso County and I haven't seen any chicken plucking equipment to rent. I've done all mine by hand, sometimes with help from a friend or two. It isn't that huge a deal in my opinion once you have them scalded properly anyway.
