    That's a good job on the plucker you did and some excellent looking chickens! I hope to get one of those built before my next batch of chickeny goodness.

    Those birds look great!

    How much "hand picking" did you have to do to finish them up?

    Just curious. I was going to build a whiz bang but if this workds well enough, maybe I'll just downsize.
