Biggest Modern Steader Giveaway

Chicken Plucker

Chicken Plucker Giveaway

We purchased a YardBird Chicken Plucker this spring to help out with our chicken harvesting process. We had great success with it until we went to use it for our third time this fall and the motor quit. I called up Jason from who doesn’t make the YardBird, they make the Rite Farm’s Pro Plucker. Jason sent me up one of their pluckers so I could finish harvesting the rest of our 50 meat birds the next weekend.


CoopsNMore’s Pro Plucker that Jason sent up works amazing! I had also called up YardBird and told them what had happened. Yardbird said they would warranty there plucker and sent out a new one to us. Now we have 2 chicken pluckers and only really need 1 plucker. I laid awake at night thinking man what should I do with this second chicken plucker. I thought to myself lets do a giveaway. I was thinking we would like to get to our next goal of 20,ooo subscribers and I bet there is at least one Modern Steader out their that could use a chicken plucker. If you haven’t seen the video we did on the giveaway here is a link to it.


When we reach 20,000 subscribes we will giving away 1 YardBird Chicken Plucker and 2 Lumnah Acres T-Shirts.  We will be randomly selecting 3 Modern Steaders who signed up.  Because of the size and weight of the YardBird Plucker, we will only be shipping within the US. If you live outside the US you still have a chance to win a Lumnah Acres T-Shirt.


To enter the giveaway you need to subscribe to our Youtube Channel and signup for our Newsletter (If you are already signed up for our newsletter you are already entered in for the giveaway). The signup for the newsletter is on the right side of our website. If you are on mobile scroll down to the bottom to signup.


To find out who are the winners of the giveaways you will need to watch our videos. When we reach 20,000 subscribers we will announce in one of our videos who the three winners are. The first winner gets to choose from a shirt or the plucker. We will work our way down the list. I WON’T be emailing the winners. Once the video is live you will have three days to contact us. If you don’t we will choose another winner. The reason for this is to keep to contest fair and to make sure the winner is a Modern Steader.

  3. Jac'Ann Perry says:

    Good morning want to wish you luck on your numbers fingers crossed..great giveaway. I have a couple of questions. How did the air locks work out???and do the newsletters go to emails ? Just wondering haven’t seen one . Looking forward to your next harvest class . Butchered three pigs here about 2 years ago had to do last one myself let’s just say a lot of mystery meat. Lol Wont do that again. Take care.

    1. LumnahAcres says:

      I think we pressed the apples too much the water was not changing in color. I bet doing a pig by yourself was not any fun

  4. Debra says:

    You guys are the best! What an awesome giveaway, thanks for the opportunity and we are super excited to see some real content (not youtube censored) on Patreon!

    1. LumnahAcres says:

      Thank you! We are excited for the giveaway and to what Modern Steaders are looking for in Patreon Videos and content

  5. Dennis says:

    Really cool giveaway Al! Come on 20K!!!! It is my preference to have a (5) day pig harvesting workshop split into two courses. The first (2) days would be all the initial harvesting, put down, hair removal, initial head cuts, evisceration, halving the pigs, harvesting organs, cleaning & prepping casings, etc. The next (3) days are spent in focusing on making specific cuts, curing, sausage making, lard rendering, head cheese making, specialty cuts & curing, smoking cuts, packaging & storing, etc. By splitting into (2) groups for each workshop, it cuts the costs down per section of workshop and making available to more attendees. I know that (5) days is a huge amount of time to tie up your Homestead and for Doug & Andy to be away from their families, but it would be the most ALL inclusive learning experience to be offered! Thanks for Listening

    1. LumnahAcres says:

      Thanks, Dennis. It is always great to hear what the modern steaders a looking for!

  6. Mary Cummins says:

    We are looking forward to the next round of pig harvesting classes. Many people don’t know you can buy a whole or half animal for butchering so it’s great that you mention it.

  7. PC says:

    Keep up the great work on the Homestead as well as on here. I enjoy ALL your videos!

    1. LumnahAcres says:

  12. Katherine says:

    Amazing give away! Your channel is one of my mom’s and my favorite channels! She and I are just beginning our homesteading venture. We have 3 egg laying chickens, (which to be honest we aren’t even supposed to have…) we’ve butchered one which was an interesting experience to say the least.
    We recently purchased some land in PA which we are super excited about! Unfortunately, we can’t begin hardcore homesteading until we sell our house lol.
    Good luck to all who enter!! Fingers crossed!

    1. LumnahAcres says:

      Congrats on the purchase of land. I bet you can’t wait to get started!

  13. Beth says:

    I love the idea of your new giveaway. Love your show Lumnah family. Good responsible values taught. The new pigs are adorable, I won’t even try to spell their names lol.
    You bring sunshine into my living room every day. Thank you for that.

    1. LumnahAcres says:

      Thanks Beth. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  14. Donna Broughton says:

    1. LumnahAcres says:

      Thanks, I cant wait to see who wins the plucker

  15. Amy Delp says:

    I love your channel, I can’t start my day until I have my coffee while I watch the videos you have up. There is so much I have learned and am looking forward to my own chicken tracktors this spring. Could you give me an idea of how many meat birds I should get? I will be raising for myself, my son’s family of 5, and my daughter’s family of 4. I was thinking of 150 meat birds should be enough but I not shore. Any input you have would be great. We will be getting pigs in 2019. Just not ready yet. Thank you for your videos. And seeing your beautiful wife and daughter helping with everything puts a smile on my face and helps me to know that I can do it to.

    1. LumnahAcres says:

      We raised 50 meat birds for us. The way I figured that is we will eat on average 1 chicken a week. I would say 150 meat birds is more than enough. Worse case scenario you will have to sell some over give some away. We gave some away this year and it has been a really fun to hear how much they enjoy them. I am hoping this will get them into raising meat chickens themselves. The more we can do that the further we can grow this movement

  16. Christine says:

    Thank you so much for all the awesome information, I love your family and your
    YouTube channel. We are trying to become modern home steaders because I’m very sick and medicine dosent help so we want to try becoming more self sufficient and eat healthier. You have been a great inspiration thank you so much. May God bless you and your family and home stead.

    1. LumnahAcres says:

      We hope you are able to start Modern Homesteading. The best advice I can give is start where you are. It doesn’t matter how small or big your first project is and will grow from there. We started with a small bin of composting worms! 🙂

  17. I like the helpful info you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your blog and check again here regularly. I’m quite sure I will learn a lot of new stuff right here! Good luck for the next!

  18. Candy Kuettel says:

  21. Sean Hinkley says:

    What an awesome giveaway, thanks for sharing your journey!

  22. Glenn Williams says:

    I live in the Adirondacks and raise a few hens now. Where do I find Icelandic chickens? Going to do some meat birds this spring any suggestions on breeds?

    1. LumnahAcres says:

      There are a few breeders in NH that sell Icelandics. Come springtime we will have some Icelandic chicks for sale. Mother Earth News has an article with a list of breeders. You might be able to find a local breeder here. You can raise the white rocks for meat birds or the freedom rangers.
