Power Plucker update

using power plucker to process poultry

This is our second year using
and we’re
ready to conclude that it’s a definite time saver for folks who prefer
to process and eat their own poultry.

You need a variable
speed drill
and it helps
to have one with a side grip handle.

Make sure the bird
is properly scalded
. The
wing feathers should pull out with little resistance…that’s when you
know you’re ready. The power plucker should be plugged in and ready to
go to minimize any delays between scalding and plucking. A large
container to catch the feathers is a good idea we might get around to
for the next chicken day.
