    We are north of houston, tx, and are wondering if anyone in the area knows of a way to borrow/barter/rent a plucker? We are getting meat birds for the first tine...also, any recommendations on the most realistic plucker to build at home for cheap?

    I built a Wizbang Plucker for about $400. It's a good design and it's always easier to troubleshoot something you built vs bought. The motor is probably the most expensive part. I got a freecycled treadmill and used drive motor with the treadmill control circuits. Works pretty good!
