Background Poultry meat recently became a major source of animal protein for a lot of population, This required restricted regulations, procedures, standards and quality indicators to ensure wholesomeness and safety. Objective This study aims to investigate the major microbial quality indicators of poultry meat at different critical control points during processing in modern and traditional slaughterhouses. Methods Methods used, Filler press for measuring water holding capacity. PH meter. pour plate count stable control culture, nutrient broth dispersed in liter of demonized water and macconkey broth. Cross-contamination of poultry through handlers was found to be the most frequent factor of contamination. Results Cross-contamination of poultry through handlers was found to be the most frequent factor of contamination Conclusion Microbial hazards encourage the production of contaminated poultry meat. Salmonella, staphylococcus aurens, coli forms are the isolate detected in the samples from both the traditional and the modern farms. Total Bacterial Count (TBC) was estimated as highest load among the fresh samples of the traditional farm (54x104) CFU/g, due to environmental contamination, the load was decreased in the same sample after thirty days of storage (25x104), this explains the impact of storage on microbial quality of poultry meat.
