“Oven-ready” means that the chickens are ready to cook. They are plucked, gutted, the giblets are “harvested”, as we say in the trade, and both the chicken and the giblets are checked for possible diseases. The chickens pass through various control stations. The official animal inspection is carried out by veterinarians and controllers of the local authority. The carcasses and their innards, the giblets, are checked and defective ones are removed. The giblets are then separated mechanically and the heart, liver and stomach are further processed.
