American ingenuity is alive and well, at least in regards to chicken plucking technology. Designer Herrick Kimball has devised a tub-style mechanical plucker that will be the envy of your neighborhood, or at least your chicken raising friends. Kimball walks you through the process step by step, with detailed drawings, cutaways, specific components, electrical plans. He also gives you guidance on the scalding. This is the plan only, does not include any of the components you will have to purchase locally. Soft cover, 2003, pp.60.
