    We are building a small poultry slaughter house to do our own various birds including ducks for our farmers market booth and hope to then expand to processing for public. I can find appropriate scalders & pluckers but not duck waxers.

    All look too gigantic for our size operation. Anyone have an idea that would still be expedient enough for a small commercial operation?

    so far we have not found the need to wax. we have a giant scalder that holds even a goose and once in the plucker they come clean quickly
