Busy Bee Series: Chicken Plucking Bee

This week our featured artifact is a photograph of a Chicken Plucking Bee circa 1915! 
Chicken Plucking Bee ca. 1915

In the foreground of the photograph are basins which feathers could be placed in. On the left you can see there is a small stove used to heat the water used in the plucking operation. In the center of the group is a small table that a chicken could be placed on. This particular Chicken Plucking Bee took place at a MacGillivray home


Getting together with friends and family would make this hard work much more enjoyable; probably something to look forward to!
