Description

As with any other species, the main objective when handling poultry is ensuring both the handler and the bird come away unharmed and relatively unstressed. The diversity among poultry species may require changes to how you capture and handle a specific bird. Written by Darrin Karcher - Purdue Assistant Professor of Animal Sciences and Poultry Specialist - this publication outlines general poultry body weights, offers four general points to remember for effective capture of poultry, and provides examples of specific capture / handling tactics for turkeys, chickens, and waterfowl.
