Here is another one from us. 2 Chickens at once. :-)

This is our homemade Whizbang Chicken Plucker. It can do up to 3 birds at a time. They come out just as clean and feather free as can be (if properly scalded). It cut the 20+/- minute job of plucking by hand - down to less than 30 seconds (14 in this case). This did not bruise the meat at all. Just in case you might ask - YES the chickens were already dead when we put them in.

COSTS:
$220 for featherplate, shaft, bearings, pulleys, drum, fingers
$60 for a used 1 HP motor (Craigslist find)
$10 for a belt
$30 for wood and screws
$20 for wheels and an axle
$10 for pipe handle
$3 for bucket (motor guard to keep it dry)
$22 for cord and waterproof switch
TOTAL COST = $375
