    Hi
    We just got an sp-1 plucker and have used it for about 50 chickens. It works great! I have 10 turkeys to kill next week and wonder if the plucker will work?

    FYI - we butchered 10 turkeys yesterday and used the plucker. We were told to remove the large feathers from the wings and tail, the head and feet. The plucker did very well, missed a few feathers on the back that we quickly removed by hand. The birds looked professionally cleaned so I would say I'm very happy with this machine! The birds ranged from 18-25 pounds.
