Electric beak trimmer
The electric beak trimmer is an instrument used in trimming the beaks of birds in a process known as debeaking. Beak trimming is a preventive measure especially in laying birds to reduce damage caused by injurious peckings such as cannibalism, feather pecking, and vent pecking, and thereby improve livability.
The device uses electric thermal energy to heat the debeaking blade which sterilizes the debeaker, burns the beak bud to limit regrowth as well as reduce blood loss.
Once plugged to an electric source, allow for 3 minutes till the cutting blade heats up and glows. Then the operator can use it directly on the parts of the beak to be trimmed. Restrain the chicken’s feet, hold the chicken neck and beak with the left hand and forefinger then gently trim the beak.
