    Does anyone know where to find a pin feather knife or a lung remover tool for a decent price? McMurray must be insane if they think I'm paying $30!!

    cornerstone farm is where I got mine. $13 for a pinning knife and $19.50 for the lung remover. Good customer service, also! www.chickenpickers.com

    never heard of a lung remover do you really need one?

    Darn! I just ordered from them last week!




    No, you don't really need it, but it helps.

    Those lung removers remind me of our grapefruit knives.

    I find it seriously gross to scrape the lungs out with my fingers, so for me, yep! Absolutely neccessary!

    I wonder who invented the "lung scraper"??? Is it patented? [​IMG]

    I use a pair of 8" hemostats I picked up at Harbor Freight. Don't remember what I paid but it wasn't much.

    I used a fork last time..
    But found a set of "salad tongs" at the dollar store since then, that have the rough edge that I was able to bend into shape.

    I use a cheap fish scaller, and one of those fruit ball makers.

    I think to together they may have cost $5.
