6 POULTRY PROCESSING TIPS TO IMPROVE CARCASS QUALITY

Chickens must be completely
submerged during scalding.
Eduardo Cervantes López

ticularly on the breast and back,
of approximately 45 C.
Depending on atmospheric
conditions where the plant is located, the water used in the plucker
should be 34 to 40 C to prevent
skin from overheating.
Water jets must be directed

toward the plucking fingers to stop
feathers accumulating and water
pressure should not be above 30
psi, as studies have shown that
higher pressure can result in fecal
matter and bacteria being forced
into the carcass.
Plucking fingers must be
checked at the end of each day to
ensure they are not broken and that
ridges have not been worn away.
Plucking equipment must be
correctly angled to achieve the
greatest possible effectiveness in
wing and tail feather removal.
It is at exit from the plucker that
issues with feed withdrawal can
be observed. If feed withdrawal

has been too short, during the
journey to the stunner, pressure
will be placed by any remaining
feed on the bird's trachea, making
breathing difficult. This sensation
of suffocation will cause the birds
to flap their wings, risking damage. Should evidence of poor feed
withdrawal be evidenced when the
birds exit the last plucker, this must
be reported back to the farm so that
it can be avoided in the future. ■
