Chicken Plucker : chix_plucker_a.jpg


chix_plucker_a.jpg
Prototype radial chicken plucker: a pawn-shop hammer drill mounted on a free sawhorse with two bungee cords and 550 cord for the trigger. Plucker head is a 4 inch ID PVC endcap fitted with plucker fingers cut from rubber bungee cordage and mounted axially on a long piece of 3/8 inch threaded stock. Trial run was on four young roosters, immersed in 170 degree F water for 30 seconds then plucked using the bottom half of the down-turning side of the plucker; aftermath seen here.
