Do it yourself low tech chicken plucker

low tech way of plucking chickens that is not automatic or motorized

This low tech way of plucking a chicken involves pulling the bird through the plucker box a few times to get the majority of feathers.

It still requires some hand plucking, but Anna seems to feel like it cuts the time needed for this chore in half.

Maybe I can improve the design a bit for version 2.0 by making the walls adjustable?

If you get a chance or make a better version of the chicken plucker can you note the dimensions of wood you used and where you got the rubber round pegs you used for the plucker?

Thank You Claudia
