The Yardbird Chicken Plucker takes the hassle out of back-yard chicken processing. Fully defeathering a bird in 15 seconds or less, the Yardbird Plucker revolutionizes what is typically the most painstaking and messy chore of processing a chicken which can take up to 30 minutes per bird if plucked by hand. With a high performance 1.5 horsepower motor the Yardbird spins a 20” stainless steel drum at 300 RPMs to quickly remove feathers and debris from a properly scalded bird. The 110 natural rubber fingers ensure that feathers are removed without damaging the meat or tearing the skin. Unlike many competitive units, the Yardbird has an integrated irrigation ring that fits up to a garden hose to flush plucked feathers out the shoot and into a collection bucket. A safety switch senses that the drum is attached before operation while a GFCI protects the operator from any excess electrical current ensuring a safe user experience. Once plucking is complete- simply wash out the food-grade drum with a garden hose and roll the unit back to storage using the built-in transport wheels. If you are looking to save time and frustration while processing your meat birds, the Yardbird is a proven product that can improve your experience and your results.
