    Looks good. What process do you use to defeather? What kind of chickens are they. (Maybe it should be obvious, but I'm still green)

    Thanks. I am NOOOO where near needing the wihzbang, but I have seen vids of them in action... Awesome. I have an old washing machine that might make a good start to building one..... When that time comes.
