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?
