Poultry Processing Tools

Anyone who raises chickens or ducks needs the essential tools for processing poultry. Our selection of knives, wax, crates, transport boxes, shears, and cones helps your farm business develop and thrive.



The United States Department of Agriculture offers guidance on proper poultry processing. In a nutshell, the process should adhere to the following:

  • Administering anesthesia so the chickens become “insensible to pain.”
  • Severing the head from the body at the point of the neck's major blood vessels.
  • Feather removal, typically by loosening the feathers by immersing them in hot water, then plucking them manually or by machine.
  • Post-mortem inspection for disease.

We offer professional tools to make this process easier. Because Stromberg’s sells to individuals, small farms, and processing plants, a backyard farmer can obtain the same high-quality poultry processing tools as a corporate farm. Our materials and tools include:

  • processing cones, also called killing cones,
  • plucker fingers,
  • skinning knives,
  • cutting gloves,
  • cleaning tables,
  • scalders,
  • pluckers,
  • shears,
  • sticking knives,
  • pinning knives,
  • lung removers,
  • boning knives,
  • chicken meat packaging materials.

We also offer a wide array of poultry crates and live bird transportation boxes if you want to haul your live birds to professional poultry processors.
