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. We offer a foot operated pedal switch, too, for an additional cost.
We offer a 1 year factory warranty on the motor/gearbox, and everything else from us. Everything is assembled in the USA, so we have replacement parts on hand and at the ready, though it’s pretty rare that you would need anything!

The Manual Dunker is great for a team that doesn’t want to monitor water temperature and has the manpower to put birds on the shackles and dunk them. The Manual Dunker and Shackles mounts on the Featherman Scalder in about 5 seconds. Mounts on the corner and locks into place. No tools required. The dunking arm 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. Shackles can hold up to 5 broilers of any weight at one time. Shackles are compatible for scalding most Ducks and Turkeys.
