We tested a new kind of low tech chicken plucker. This innovative solution is a drill powered plucker that only cost 30 dollars and is easy to operate. Anna was surprised at how effective it was at getting the pin feathers and I was impressed with its sturdy construction. The savings add up pretty quick when you figure a few minutes multiplied by 20 equals a precious hour.
Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton like to share most of their homesteading adventures at their blog called Walden Effect. They make and sell a new kind of chicken waterer that brings an industrial solution to the backyard chicken keeper.
