Talon®

Talon euthanize chickens safely

The Talon® is a user-friendly and effective way to euthanize chickens using CO2*. Applying cervical dislocation can be difficult and requires considerable strength for larger poultry. When using the Talon®, simply collect a few culls into the bucket, place the bucket in the bucket holder, press the button, and let the Talon® run its cycle.

With the Talon®, you not only have an easy way to euthanize, but you can also enjoy the peace of mind that you are using an approved method of animal welfare*.

*The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has approved CO2 as an acceptable method of euthanasia of poultry.
*The Talon® has been tested and approved by a third party. See documentation below.
