    My cornish x should be in by monthes end. I'm also getting some turkeys in July. There isn't a processor close to me. I'd like to have a plucker what are your thoughts? Brands? TIA

    If you do any amount of chicken dressing, a plucker is well worth the investment. They are expencieve to buy and can be to build as well. I built one and love it. Nothing hard about it if you have the time and desire. I enjoy building things like this so it was just another part of the hobby for me. I will say once you butcher more than 10 birds at a time with a good plucker, you won't want to do it without one...... Good luck, Bill
