I take care of 26,000 chickens. From the time they are 5 weeks old, until we send them to a lay farm at 20 weeks old. I have a 7 man crew that helps me tend to them. We have 4 different flocks that are 4 to 6 weeks apart in age. I run a crew of 3 on the weekends including myself. We have to make sure the chickens have the correct feed by using the feed conversion formula. We also have to make sure they have access to water on the nipple line. As well as making sure they have plenty of pine shavings in their living areas, so that the ammonia is under control. We also have to make sure they have plenty of air ventilation so the chickens and all of us have fresh air. Then if anything breaks or messes up I fix the problem and log it. I am the maintenance guy because I am Lock Out Tag Out certified. As well as Respirator fit tested just in case something in the company needs someone take care of a sever problem. Then we have to give them an amino breast shot, and a live chicken pox shot in their wing to prevent disease. When the chickens turn 12 to 15 weeks old we do first flock then second 2 weeks later and so on. Then we have to sort them according to the lay farms needs. While we are sorting them we have to scan the wing band which determines what the bird is. They can be Pedigree (X) or reserve (R) or back up reserves (Y) or a bulk bird (Z). We paint each one individually (X) no paint (R) ring around the neck (Y) on the tail (Z) on the back. Then we have to ship them to a 3 lay farms according to what the farm is and what they need. Then once every bird is shipped off of my farm we tear everything down and clean every square inch of the 450,000 square foot farm with industrial pressure washers. We have to get everything clean in 17 days so we can start the next cylce.
Stack block using an electric Palatizer all day long. I would have to turn the block certain ways so that it would Lock together. I would turn them as they came down the rollers from the kiln. I had to be faster than the line so the blocks wouldn't jam up and bust. Each stack had to have a number on them so we could keep count on what it was and how much was ordered. There are many varieties of block that had to be stacked certain ways to fit correctly on a 40 by 48 pallet. Some of the block had to be split in half with a hydraulic splitter, which only I was allowed to run because it was extremely dangerous. If I wasn't careful and paying attention to what I was doing I could lose my fingers or my entire arm. On a normal day I turned block and fixed the machines when they broke down. At the end of the day we shut down everything and cleaned all the excess busted block and extra mixing material that fell in the floor from the block molder with air chisles. Then come in at 2 am the next day to clean the mixer and material bins to start a different style block.
