    I am so happy i have been wanting to work on a chicken farm for over three years, and I finally got a job on a chicken farm. we dont sell the eggs, we get to raise the baby chicks until they start laying, then we sell them. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Congrats! Just curious, are they okay with you having chickens of your own?
    Most commercial operations are very strict about bio-security and don't allow other chicken owners around their chickens. I know this because several of our friends are commercial chicken farmers and when my SO goes to visit, I have to stay home. [​IMG]
