Featherman Pro – Our Best Selling Chicken Plucker:
- Chicken Plucking made easy! Simply scald 4-5 birds & drop them into the Featherman PRO!
- Birds pick clean in 20-30 seconds. No pin feathers or backache. Can handle up to 50 lbs of poultry.
- Featherman equipment is manufactured in the USA.
- Satisfaction guaranteed.
- 1 yr warranty on all parts.
- Tub & housing is high density, UV-resistant, food grade molded plastic.
- 119 ultra-soft fingers.

The Featherman PRO Plucker features 119 ultra soft fingers, delicately removing the feathers from the birds. The 1 HP motor along with direct drive speed reducer offers the perfect power to process roughly 40-50 lbs of poultry (live weight) or approximately (4-5) 5 lbs broiler chickens (dressed weight). The Featherman PRO is primarily for chickens, but it can handle turkeys & gamebirds too (we do offer separate pluckers for those if that’s your specialty!)
A unique feature of our plucker is the feather chute, which keeps the feathers contained in one spot, offering quick easy clean up! The water spray ring gives the birds an even spray of cold, for quick feather release and the waterproof switch ensures operation safety.
Featherman pluckers require virtually zero maintenance. No oil change or grease fittings, simply wash down after use and store in a dry area, under cover and out of the elements.
Featherman Stainless Scalder with Manual Dunker:
This Featherman Stainless Scalder with Manual Dunker is a great setup for a team that doesn’t want to monitor water temperature but has the ability to do a bit of manual labor (putting birds on the shackles and dunking them). The manual dunker mounts on the Featherman scalder in about 5 seconds, locking into place. No tools are required. The dunking arm also pivots from left to right making loading and unloading birds easy. Heavy, adjustable springs allow any load of poultry to be neutrally balanced for effortless dunking.
The goal: No pin feathers. Period. This only happens with a perfect scald. The Featherman Scalder holds a constant water temperature to help you achieve that perfect scald. Made of 16 gauge stainless steel with a 100,000 BTU propane burner, temperature control within a five degree range, and sized for four birds at a time (40 gallon).
