What is the signal indicating the location of the wing hematoma?

Wing haematomas can be seen on the inside or on the outside of the wing. You can derive the cause from this.

Bruises on the inside are usually caused by putting the broiler into the crate. Do this carefully and with awareness. Bruises on the outside of the wing are usually caused by striking the wings against walls and in bends on the slaughter line.

Prevent flapping by applying dim or blue light and avoid stress caused by ups and downs, bends, sudden noise, draughts, light or bumping into objects. A plastic plate along the breast on route from shackling to stunning makes the birds calm (mandatory in EU).
