Yardbird Chicken Plucker is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 217.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real time-saver Very nice piece of equipment, Stainless steel quality equipment. This chicken plucker makes very short work of plucking chickens or any kind of birds, 15 to 20 seconds of bird does not have to run very long to do several Birds. This is a real time-saver and easy to clean and operate. Highly recommended

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Works great, usually takes me 20-30 minutes to pick a bird. The machine did it in about 20 seconds. Takes some time to set-up and clean when your finished, but other than that a great machine. One of the legs broke from the base, reason for 4 stars not five.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORTH EVERY PENNY. Works like a dream getting all the pin feathers out and DID NOT tear the skin at all. Easy to use but machine is heavy get help moving it in yard. After I sat for 1 and half hours plucking feathers on 3 birds since they are hard to get all at once, I said forget this! It took less than 1 min to pluck the entire bird without a tear, and the hose hook up kept my hands free and the machine lubricated while it spins. I will say this the only downside was it says you can do 2 at once but we found it worked better with one at a time. I was able to process all my chickens in one day. Would not hesitate to but again if needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY!!!! As other reviewers have said, this plucker died after only 2 birds!!! My belief is that it is a design flaw with the electrical not being properly shielded from the water used while plucking the birds. I was setup to process 30 birds and it completely stopped working after the first 2, just great. Hoping Tractor Supply will take back....we will see. DONT BUY!!!!

How does the water stay out of the motor since it is directly under the barrel

Asked by: Pakabear9
The motor is pretty protected. There are holes at the bottom of the tub to help deter the water away from the motor. I would encourage you to watch a video of the Chicken Plucker being operated to help you see the process and you will be able to see the water coming out of the holes, away from the motor. Contact Ardisam, the manufacturer, if you should have any additional questions. They can be reached Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Central time at 800-345-6007 option 1, then option 5. Have a good day.
