Here's the differing criteria for processing. Try to give me an estimated time per bird or some group of birds (i.e. - 1 per 30 minutes, 5 per hour, etc). - Beginner, plucking by hand after scalding. 2-man team with one killing, scalding and plucking, and one eviserating. - Experienced, same criteria as above - Beginner, plucking by hand after scalding, team of 5 people working in an assembly line type fashion. - Experienced, same criteria as above. Now how long if I had an electric tub-style chicken plucker? My wife and I will be processing our 20 broilers in September. We're going to try plucking by hand at first, but might be willing to build our own plucker if it would save considerable time. We also have some friends who are willing to go in with us on some broilers the next time around. They would push our team up from 2 to 5. Thanks.
