Our Chicken Plucker

Daddy and the boys have been building us a chicken plucker. We are so excited that we won't have to pluck by hand anymore! We are almost looking forward to butchering day this year - usually we look forward to the day after butchering day. :)Deborah is putting the fingers into the tub. There are over 100 in all!And finally...a picture of the chickens that get to try the plucker out in just 2 weeks! :)


  1. We loved your chicken plucking video! Where did you get the plans for building your chicken plucker and where did you buy the fingers?

  2. We used Herrick Kimball's book, "Anyone Can Build A Tub-Style Mechanical Chicken Plucker". You can buy the book here -

    We bought both the fingers and the plate from him also.
