This is a good place to start to help determine what size equipment you will need
for different size operations. We have pickers that will do 1 bird at a time to machines
that will do 1000 birds per hour.
Basic 200 Birds Per Hour
These are our most basic packages. The number of birds that can be done is based
on the amount of labor available. 3 experienced people can do 60 birds per hour.
7 experienced people can do approximately 200 birds per hour.
The basic equipment will do up to 100 birds per hour. Optional equipment will allow
the operator to process 350-500 birds per hour. The bird per hour numbers are based
on 4-5 pound live weight birds and is contingent on appropriate manpower on the processing
line. The average person can process 15-20 birds per hour.
