    You can build your own whizbang plucker for about $500. Pricey, but a lot cheaper than bought ones.

    Do a google search for whizbang plucker and you'll find a blog, yahoo group and youtube videos of how it works.

    I'm tempted....mainly because I like to build stuff and I also like to build stuff that saves money over bought ones.

    Now, do I have any meat birds to pluck???? Not yet....but when I do, I might just have to build me one of these... [​IMG]
