    Hello everyone,
    I wasn't sure where to post this, but was curious to know if there are any careers out there that surround chickens. I am at a career change in my life and curious to know what else is out there besides office work. The only thing I could think of was veterinary work, so I got a certification in veterinary assisting. But i thought who better to ask than chicken people? Looking forward to any answers and a career change. Thank you.

    I don't think there are many jobs with backyard/hobby type birds. I think most of the jobs with chickens are in commercial productions--broiler production, hatcheries, things like that. that's where the $$ is, so that's where the jobs are. I can't think of anything smaller scale that would support you, unless you have space and buildings to start a niche commercial egg business.
