Keep the Birds Calm

Use a breast comforter to keep birds calm from the point of shackling to stunning. The physical contact between the Breast Comforter and the chicken’s breast, which contains many nerve endings, contributes to relaxation. Comforted and relaxed birds entering a correctly adjusted water stunner will instantly and effectively reach unconsciousness.

The water stunner is used to stun broilers and turkeys in a live weight range from 300 grams to 25 kilos. The stunner is available in different lengths to suit different line speeds.
