Featherman a small manufacture located in the heart of the Missouri Amish communities have been manufacturing and selling high quality poultry processing equipment around the world since 2000.

They have perfected the design first plucker developed by an Amish gentleman which inspired the plans for the famous Wiz Bang Chicken Plucker.

Since that time they have developed models for turkey and wild game birds, as well as a gas fired hot water scalder and the dipping shackles.

The birds are first slaughtered using a killing cone to allow the carcass to properly bleed out. The birds are then dunked into several times in 145-150 degree scalding water to loosen the skin holding the feathers.

After the scalding the birds are placed in the plucking machine that will clean up to 4-5 birds at a time in 20 seconds.

The birds are then fished by cutting the head, feet and removal of the internals. A good rinse inside and out the birds are ready to be cooled quickly in a ice water bath before being placed in freezer bags.

The Featherman Poultry Scalder

The secret to easy feather removal is in the scalding process

The scalding process allows the skin holding in the feathers to become relaxed. If the dunking process is too short the feathers won't remove properly, if the process is too long the poultry will begin to cook.

This portable gas fried scalder is thermostatically controlled to hold a constant temperature. Once the number of dunks and timing under the scalding water is processed to easily pull even the tiny pin feathers, the process becomes routine and ready to move batches on over to the plucking process.

Made of high quality Stainless Steel featuring a 65,000 to 70,000 BTU propane burner.

Will hold four birds at a time (40 gallons) Best when used with the four bird shackle and dunking system.
