Pickers and Scalders | Tub Pickers | Econo Systems | Accessories

Each HOM-PIK comes with a complete Instruction Manual with easy-to-follow directions for each step of the process. The best procedures for killing, bleeding and scalding are all laid out for you. To pick a bird you simply roll it back and forth across the HOM-PIK drum, exposing each part of the body to the action of the "Velvet Touch" fingers. In no time you'll be able to pick a chicken in as little as 15 seconds!
