Technical Abstract: In most countries, humane slaughter of poultry includes the use of various stunning systems, each of which offers advantages and disadvantages (engineering challenges). The effects of the different stun and stun-to-kill methods will be reviewed, along with research study results evaluating bird welfare during the stunning process and effects on meat quality.
