    They have them on amazon.com for sure, I think I have seen then on Stromberg's website as well. Or you can use an apple corer and get the same effect for much much cheap or for even cheaper, your fingernails. I hope this helped.

    If any of you have a little strawberry corer, they work amazingly well for scraping out the lungs. [​IMG]

    I just use my fingers. You get a feel for them, tucked up in the ribs. Just catch the top and it peels right out.

    Fingers for me too. I recommend saving the money.

    Using your fingers works well (right hand for right lung, left for left lung) but if you are processing a lot of chickens at one time, you will have very sore fingertips. I always loose three fingernails past the quick on each hand, we do 75-100 birds at once.
