    We are looking for a chicken plucker that is inexpensive and doesn't require a degree in rocket science to assemble. We are willing to buy one if it's under $200. All suggestions are welcome..

    You can get cheap pickers out of Murry McMurray for around $400, but that is without a motor. With a motor runs around $470. To be honest it might be very difficult to find one around $200 that is in good working condition. With these cheap pickers you have to hold the bird and run them across the rubber fingers to remove the feathers. These are not the ones you see in small commercial operations where you put 10 chickens into a drum and it does all the work. Good Luck!

    Cabelas has a small unit that fits on a drill for $14.99 and I think they have a larger plucker, table model but not sure how much it is.
