The Story

Anyone who has tried to pluck a bird by hand knows that there has got to be a better way. The fowl plucker is the answer to your problems. Quickly and easily remove feathers without the mess in less time. A powerful one-third horsepower motor spins the plucker fingers. Constructed with food-grade rubber, the fingers won't damage the bird skin no matter how hard you push. Anti-vibration legs keep noise down, and the roto-molded shield is as tough as it gets. Shop-Vac (not included) compatibility allows for efficient removal of feathers as you work. The Fowl Plucker creates less hassle and less mess. In goose, duck.

Made in USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 30 + years on last one We had one of these on our duck club for 35 years. Avg. hunting weekend we do 50+ birds on this machine. It finally died this year and we will be purchasing the same one again. Tips; keep the motor covered from feathers and the weather. Keep motor covered from rain! If you can, store covered indoors or barn for the off season and it will last you more than 30+ years. If you try to hook up a vacuum to the back, it will clog and feathers are too big/wide and get stuck in vacuum hose. Put on a jacket, stand to the side and you can do 2 ducks a minute for breast feathers. Once breast feathers are plucked, dip your bird in 200F water and the feathers for the rest of the bird will slide off with no skin damage. Upland birds use 200F water to scald skin and you will have no skin tear issues with plucking. After 15 years of heavy use, you'll need new plucking fingers on the spindle. This is the right machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Expensive but worth the money. Plucked 6 ducks, 2 Pheasants and 1 Quail in under 30 minutes without a mess! I had to be careful with the Pheasants and Quail but it worked great without tearing the skin. The ducks were a piece of cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of breed! I have used every duck picking product known to all, and this is by far the best duck picking machine on the market! Excellent long term investment for serious duck hunters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Duck picker These guys have taken a good picker and made it great. Larger motor and redesign has made it better. Picks wet ducks and now they have fingers for geese. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I was surfing the Orvis site and ran across this plucker. I was given this very plucker for my 16th birthday. That was 42 years ago. Yes 42!. Other than replacing the fingers several times from shear wear and tear, this plucker has and still is working flawlessly. I am an avid duck hunter and there is literally no telling the number of ducks this thing has feathered. I am so glad to see that it is still available. Highly recommended.
