Build Yourself A Poultry Plucker
Mechanical poultry and waterfowl pluckers have been available "factory made" for quite a while in various styles, but this is the first one we've seen that can be put together from a kit.
Compared to complete "factory made" pluckers which cost about three times as much, the new North Sports Plucker Kit sells for right at $100. For plucking only ducks or geese, a simpler plucker head costing $35 can be mounted on your own electric motor.
The North Sports goose plucker head has short ribbed fingers that pick the feathers from a dry bird. Besides the separate head, the company offers a motorized unit for $89, and DC unit for $120 that will run off an automobile battery.
A refinement of the waterfowl plucker is the chicken plucker kit which contains plucker head, mandrel, and 2-step pulley for $89.50, plus shipping.
Replacement fingers for either unit are available at $1 each.
