I recently had to process 7 geese and boy will I tell you the plucking took hours. I am planning on raising geese and turkeys this coming spring for food and really want to buy or make a plucker to make life easier. I had used a plucker that was like a tub with a rotating bottom and I absolutely hated it (pictured below). It broke the birds legs, tore the skin, and pretty much mangled the bird to a point where it looked like it ate a grenade. I don't know if I did something wrong but it seemed pretty strait forward to just putting the scalded bird in the rotating bin and it would be plucked. Maybe I just had a bad experience... So what are your thoughts? Did you buy a plucker or make one yourself? How do you not tear the skin when you pluck? Same model I used.
