    On the scrounge!! Chicken plucker

    Hi guys,

    I have a small farm and wanting to buy/make/borrow a drum type chicken plucker to process birds. I'm in Palmerston North.

    We have 45 ducks. Half ready now and the rest in a couple of weeks.

    16 turkeys in a couple of months and we have approx. 30 ross cobb chickens arriving next week so they will be ready in 8+ weeks after that.

    I envisaged making my own using an old 200l drum and buying fingers and a motor/gearbox or pulley system but time is always of the essence.

    Does anyone have one lying around that you don't use and want to sell it?

    Anyone local that wants to hire it out for half a dozen days a year?

    Or does someone have an old 3/4hp motor/gearbox/pulley lying around cheap?

    Cheers, John

    Get an old washing machine and attach the fingers to that. Already has motor, gearbox etc. Seems way less effort, as the majority of the required components are part of the washing machine.
