Every small-farm and backyard poultry producer dreams of a machine that will do the nasty job of feather plucking. With the publication of "Anyone Can Build A Tub-Style Mechanical Chicken Plucker" that dream can now be an affordable reality.
This book is a well organized and complete how-to guide to building a Whizbang feather plucking machine. A Whizbang plucker will pick the feathers off chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese in a matter of seconds. Just turn the machine on, drop one or more scalded birds into the tub and watch as rubber fingers flail the feathers off (whithout damaging the bird's skin).
Every component needed to make the machine is thoroughly discussed and the construction process is carefully detailed, step by step. There are 62 clear drawings. There is also a chapter dedicated to the subject of alternative construction options, as well as a chapter about other equipment used to process poultry. Mail order sources for parts are listed in the Resources chapter at the back of the book.
Commercial tub pluckers cost $2,000+ but this book tells the reader how to build a comparable unit for $500 or less. A Whizbang plucker will dutifully pluck thousands of birds for years to come.
