So I been thinking about this . . . Ive wanted to build my plucker, even have all the parts . . . Yesterday, I processed my 1st cornishx . . . After a 15 second or less dunk-n-swoosh in 150 degree water, the feathers RUBBED right off in prolly less than a minute. Put leather work gloves on, held the bird right over the garbage can and rubbed . . . I thought it was gonna be a PIA, but was prolly the easiest part of the process. Now I think about all those youtube vids of stanky wet feathers flying EVERYWHERE while using a plucker, and how much certain pluckers "beat the meat", I dont think I need one. I got the feathers off that chicken yesterday, seems like in less time than a plucker could(at least on YT), and didnt bruise or batter my bird. I honestly just rubbed them off. The few pinfeathers that were left came off after rubbing with my bare hand. Gimmie a few more for practice, and Im sure I can out-process anybody with a plucker, 20 chickens each.
