Gallery: Inside a Poultry Farm

By Jeffrey Benzing

Chicken carcasses make their way through Perdue’s Georgetown, Del., processing facility. After slaughter, defeathering and evisceration (steps that News21 was not permitted to photograph), carcasses pass through a quick burst of flames that removes any remaining feathers. From here, the line of chickens will split: Some will be packaged as whole roasters, while the rest will be cut up and separated by parts. Click on the thumbnails below to view this gallery.
