Welcome to the FowlPlucker!
Pluck your duck in minutes without a feather mess by connecting your lightweight & portable FowlPlucker to a shop vac. Use your FowlPlucker to pluck geese for smoking and cooking.
Your plucked duck will have no down nor eye feathers remaining, your bird is oven ready! Our custom made fingers replace ORVIS Duck Plucker fingers.
Our Blue Goose fingers were in production February 15th, 2012. Plucking results exceed the original fingers (1969) for pulling strength and longevity. These unique soft rubber fingers dry pluck all species of diving ducks including the famous trophy bird, the King Eider. These new fingers can easily replace your original fingers or you may simply replace the head with our Blue Goose finger head in three minutes.
The FowlPlucker is popular with hunters as well as growers of farm-raised game birds. Muscovy Duck Growers and all Heritage fowl breeders are big fans of the FowlPlucker. Use your FowlPlucker to dry pluck your game birds in the KOSHER process. GUMBO eaters will love the speed and ease of Fowl Plucking their ducks. Many of you ask if our fingers are successful on domestic fowl and the answer is “yes!” Pick ‘em dry, not messy wet!
The 1/2 horsepower, 7 amp, 110 volt Baldor, USA made motor is oilless and should last a lifetime or more for home use. The FowlPlucker stainless shaft and coupling are hand milled creating little vibration and noise. Two mounting bolts with jam nuts are supplied with each plucker. Four anti vibration legs are mounted on each base. The key to complete feather removal is power and torque. Our plucker fingers are unique and the most efficient you will find. Many pluckers are noisy and messy. Our fingers are food grade rubber and will not harm the bird skin at any pressure. The shroud is roto molded from PE (polyethylene plastic) and is tough as a Yeti Cooler. Bear proof too! Its design makes for the perfect flow of feathers into the shop vac. In a few minutes you have a beautiful oven ready bird!
All hand-made and custom designed by Duck Hunters
to honor the bird to your dinner table!
NOTE: If large geese, swans, cranes and turkeys are in your bag, we now offer a slide out bottom on our green shroud. For more information and photos please see our Big Bird FowlPlucker.
The Do-It-Yourself FowlPlucker
Build your own bird plucker with our easy FowlPlucker kit. Includes the unique soft rubber fingers installed in head, shaft and motor coupling, all pre-assembled. You supply any motor up to 2hp and we will include the coupler you need. Note: 1750 rpm motor +/- 5% required.
All individual components of The FowlPlucker are also available for purchase separately. Please contact us for our personal advice to help you pluck ‘em clean and eat ‘em with the skin on.
A complete DIY kit for tailgate plucking is also available. This package includes the extended bird hitch holder, motor, shaft, head, extension cord and 2000w inverter, fully assembled for a 5-minute setup. Your plucker mounts on the extended bird hitch with four small bolts and easy to tighten wing nuts. For current plucker owners we have allowed mounting space and mounting holes in the bird hitch plate. Just take it along on your trip and let the feathers fly. Save hundreds of dollars in local plucking and cleaning fees and on your time schedule. Pick ‘em in the bush and feed the coyotes the remains; be careful of wind direction or you’ll look like Big Bird. You can also take your vacuum packer along, plug it into the inverter then find some local freezer space in a restaurant or market. You’ll have more meat to enjoy and give away when you can pluck the whole bird in minutes. No more wasted legs and carcass for making fresh vegetable stock. Bill and I want our birds to have the best care and packaging and you do too!
