The poultry plucker machine is an essential part of modern farming that is used to remove feathers from slaughtered birds including chickens, geese, pigeons, and quail. Feather plucking is required along with a cleaning process that removes any remaining fuzz, the claws, and any surface dirt.
The machine can also be used for removing the skin of various vegetables including ginger and potatoes, as well as scales from fish including mackerel. However, its basic use is in chicken and other domestic fowl farms.
How the Chicken Plucker and Scalding Machine Works
- Put the slaughtered poultry into hot water with a temperature of 65°C – 80°C, scalding uniformly. Turn on the machine.
- After about 10 seconds, turn on (open) the water faucet (tap) so that the chicken feathers or ginger skin washes out.
- Generally, removing chicken feathers only takes about 30 seconds. Stop the machine and remove the poultry (or vegetables).
