Yes, we currently have two options for gizzard peeling. Delong’s offers a Chicken Gizzard Peeler and a Turkey Gizzard Peeler. Both options have yield rates of 80-90%.

How long are your lead times?

Lead times vary for different products, but most items are kept in stock and can ship the same day of order.

Can your products increase my yield?

Yes, our products have proven to increase yield anywhere from 15% to 20% in most cases. For example, if your current yield is 50-60%, then you would see an increase to 80-90% with our parts and machinery.

How do I know if my peeler rollers are worn?

You will see grooves in roller teeth, shiny appearances on and around teeth, and peeling and yield will decrease.
