If you have ever processed your own chickens, then you know how time consuming the plucking can be. Even with the proper scalding temperatures, the plucking still takes a good amount of time, and that can seriously add up when your doing a half years worth of birds at once.
We try to put up enough chicken to last us a whole year. Without spending $1000 on a commercial plucker, chicken butcher days would take us the better portion of our Saturday.
Not any more! During my late night searching on the internet, I stumbled upon the Power Plucker
This plucking device costs $34.99. The genius idea behind power plucker is this: Why pay for a motor to run your plucker, when every homestead out there has a drill!
The power plucker is a drill attachment. It removes feathers the same way any other plucker does, with the rubber fingers. BUT it costs a fraction of the price!
There is a small difference in how the Power Plucker works when comparing it to most other commercial pluckers. Some like to clamp the plucker to a table and run the chicken against it. This is the technique shown by their website here See It Work
