    At this point I don't think I want the hassle of building A Whiz Bang plucker but I can't afford a Featherman. I am leaning toward a tabletop
    picker with a strong motor. I will probably only pluck 100 birds/year. Will I be disappointed with a table top unit? [​IMG] Does anyone know of any sites where these table top pluckers are reviewed??

    Thanks for your input!

    I have a table top plucker/picker and I wish I got it a long time ago. I'll do 60 - 70 birds per year. It might take me no more then a couple of minutes to pluck a bird (usually less). It's easy to clean and store. I usually have a bird plucked before the next one is bleed out. Next year, I am going to have 3 - 5 cones going at once so I don't have to wait. I don't know of any sites:

    Here is one. To me they seem to work pretty well.
