Poultry & Duck Wax

Poultry waxes are specially designed waxes used in the plucking process of wet-footed bird and game carcasses. These waxes are available for both wet and dry defeathering techniques.

Carmel poultry waxes are advanced formulations of paraffins, microcrystalline waxes and additives. Their benefits include:

  • Special formulations for duck and geese varieties.
  • Can be used for plucking by hand or automatic dry and wet plucking processes.
  • Available in liquid bulk or in slabs.


The poultry wax forms a flexible, consistent and adhesive layer on the skin of pre-defeathered birds. The wax layer is then pulled off automatically or by hand to remove the remaining pin feathers.
